You either need to say

"According to [A] [B], and [C], I need to..."


"The [A] [B] and [C] indicate that I need..."


You cannot do both.


"According to [A][B], and [C]" is a phrase.

"indicate" is an improperly placed verb that could begin to function correctly if you removed "According" and allowed [A][B], and [C] to function as its subject.

"that I need..." is a dependent clause. 


You have no independent clause.

You need an independent clause.
