Unhappy Dash lights flashing

2002 PT with 44,000.0 miles original owner. A few weeks ago my Trac Light and ABS light came on. Went away in a couple of days. Started it up yesterday and the Trac Light and ABS light came on. Drove it and the Battery Light came on along with Trac Light and ABS Light..

This is the kicker....Turn the headlights on while it is running and it will shut down. Starts right back up with the same symptoms.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Go get the battery load tested at your friendly auto parts store. And while you're at it, have them test the charging system too.

I would suggest cleaning the battery cables first.
