Default Check engine light, lights flickering, backfiring HELP

My 03, 2.4 turbo check engine light just came on, the engine started running rough and backfiring. All the lights (headlights, dash, radio, etc) flicker. Checked all fluid and battery connections and they seemed fine. Any suggestions of what to look for that is causing the problem?

You could try the key dance to pull the codes and go from there.
How to retrieve fault codes.
