Sounds like multiple concerns.

First dash lights and headlights - sounds like a possible faulty headlight switch and/or wiring connector. Have the switch inspected.

Second - the overhead console computer and the fuel gauge - the sending unit for the fuel system / fuel pump sounds like it is malfunctioning. Could be the sender, could be a wiring issue. A diagnosis is really in order to troubleshoot the circuit. Good luck.
