c270 cdi 2001 Confusing fault messages

Hi Folks
I own a 2001 c270 cdi and encountered the following problem
Whilst driving, the following two messages appeared almost simultaneously:
1) Brake warning on dashboard - yellow
2) Faulty display - yellow
Simultaneously with receiving these two messages, the speedometer went off-line. The vehicle continued as normal until the next stop, whereafter it went into limp mode
Upon reaching home I selected "Park", whereafter, although the car was still idling normally, it would not come out of "Park". Thereafter any attempts to start only resulted in the ignition lights coming on, but when turning the key to the start position, nothing happened. The battery was tested and is OK\
Please help guys
