Unhappy Flashing dashboard lights

The lights on my Clio's dashboard flash on and off for no apparent reason. Some days they don't flash at all, but lately they are doing it more often than not. The lights which are flashing at the moment are the handbrake light the stop and serv. light along with the picture of the steering wheel. In the past it was the ABS light, airbag light and serv. light. I am worried in case this is dangerous, could it effect the steering? as recently I have felt the steering wheel locking slightly as I am driving and was wondering if an electrical fault maybe affecting the power steering intermittently.

I took the car to two garages, the first was unable to find the source of the problem. The second discovered the alternator was faulty and allowing too high a voltage causing safety mechanisms to cut in to protect the electronics. The solution to the problem is a new alternator.
