my gauges went berzerko!! help!

Postby THE MUFFIN MAN [OP] » August 23rd 2012, 7:42pm

so im driving to work when all of a sudden, EVERY light on my dash lights up!! every warning light, every thing with a bulb in it. then, the gauges started giving no reading at all, empty fuel, zero temp, voltage at zero. then it would go back and forth between working, and going nutz. the van kept running fine all the way to work, and i havent run it since, but what would cause such an event? dead or low battery? alternator? some type of looming electrical failure? any help would be greatly appreciated.
