Today on my way to school the light came on.... car ran fine, no noises, temperature was fine....no vibrations... got to school turned it off and came out an hour and a half later. I start it and i hear a clicking sound that speeds up the faster i drive (Pretty damn loud)... get to the other building at the college pissed off and come out from class an hour and a half later, check the oil... good level nothing else is leaking and theres no more clicking but the lights still on. WTF is wrong? anyone know?

is your car OBD1? if so go to the FAQ section on how to pullyour own code. but it sounds to me like its gonna be a O2 sensor. only because you say on and off.
