98 honda accord dashboard lights suddenly all on

I was driving on the freeway when suddenly all the red dashboard lights (battery, seatbelt, doors/trunk open) went on. I drove for a couple more miles before stopping. Is it safe to drive the car to a repair
shop? Do you think it's a computer glitch (i didn't see any reference to this on the manual) or is something seriously wrong? I tried disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it but the lights are still on.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

Sorry, I don't have a schematic to your particular year so can't tell anything for sure but could tell you what I'd do:
If I had to guess, it is probably an electrical problem of sorts. Those systems (seatbelts, doors/trunk, etc) have very little in common except power and ground so it could be that you have a ground loose or that the power is not right.
If you have a volt meter, I'd check across the battery with the car running and the headlights on. You should see about 14.5 volts. If you see 14.5V, you know that the lit battery indicator is totally bogus and it is most likely safe for you to drive it to repair shop.
If you see appreciably less than 14.5 volts, the alternator, battery or wires/ground between is suspect. In that case, the car may leave you stranded while getting it to your repair place since your battery is truly not being charged. In that case, I am not sure how that would cause the other lights to be lit, though. (depends on how they implemented these lights)
Hopefully someone here has a schematic to your year and will be able to give you a hopefully more difinitive answer.

One more thing (might be obvious, but just in case): if you don't see 14.5V while running: check the alternator belt as well. Perhaps yours snapped or is slipping.
