Sounds like the computer is bad.

The check gauge light comes on when the oil pressure gauge drops down so thats whats causing that light. Check the wire going to your oil pressure switch that is located on the motor on the drivers side of the water pump. Considering everything is happening at once I'd be more concerned on what really is happening with oil pressure etc.

Get a code reader and see if you can get any codes.

Make sure you aren't low on oil. I was once and when I went around a sharp curve the check gauge light came on and the oil gauge was bottomed out. Leveled out and it went up. Car was 2 qts low on oil. This was years ago.

The check engine light has nothing to do with the check gauge. Pull codes and see what it's trying to tell you.
