Dash Lights going crazy!

Hello gang!

New member here. Had my 2014 F350 go crazy this morning. 4km from home and all the warning lights lit up. Low oil pressure, high engine temp, starter fault and everything else. As I was at a stop light, looked at my temps and was fine as the engine hadn't even had time to warm up in the distance I drove. I pulled over shut it down. Popped the hood just to feel the engine. Cool to the touch. So I figure a sensor or comp issue. Turn the key over to see is the shut down would reset. Nope. All the warning plus more. The wrench symbol and advancetrack warnings......Called the tow company. Get it to the dealership and guess what, all is fine. This is unacceptable. 95000kms. Have the dash warnings on video though (don't know how to upload). Any ideas? Is there a fix?

I believe the vast majority of the 'dash lighting up' issues stems from the harness connector mounted just above the parking break. It has caused me issues from the 'dash lighting up' with multiple displays exactly like the OP describes (revolving "Starting System Failure", "Advance Trak Failure" "Low Oil Pressure", "High Engine Temperature", the "Wrench" - it even set codes that the dealer service manager told me do not exist in their manuals), to rear view camera not working or being intermittent. It is a very real problem. Now if anything happens to my truck, I START with that connector (which at least two data networks flow through, including the CAN - big time data transfers).

Please don't anyone be offended - I know other issues can cause these symptoms, but I just start with that connector due to my experiences.
