All my dash warning lights are on

Almost all my dash warning lights are on. the drive train malfunction light is on The speedo is not working. I have no power steering and the car feels almost like the shocks don't work when you sit in it now. I tried to change out the #2 fuse like I have read on some forums and that fuse was blown but even after changing it nothing works. I think it has something to do with my comfort access. The driver door does not unlock by pulling the handle automatically. The 3 other doors do work. Do I have to do something to reset these warning lights or should I wait and hope it works in the AM? Any suggestions? Is it OK to drive it to a garage?

I had this happen recently. It ended up being one of my comfort access door handles. It blew the fuse, which unfortunately is the same fuse for all those lights. Check your fuse diagram. Mine was a 5amp in the passenger fuse box. I unplugged all of my comfort access harnesses on the handles and replaced the fuse. After erasing all the codes, it did not happen again. I had to plug each one back one at a time to see which handle was giving me problems. Be sure to have extra fuses as it will blow again once the problematic handle is plugged in again. Since your driver door doesn't work, I would start there.

It's really easy to unplug the door handle. There is just one screw to access on the side of the door. Once you loosen that, the door handle will come off and you can unplug the harness. There are 2. The second one I believe is for the light on the handle.

Also, you can find a fuse puller in the fuse box in the trunk.

A bad battery can make everything act up too.
