Question about 1998 Chrysler Cirrus
You don't say if the battery is then flat? If the battery is flat, then the alternator is not supplying enough charge and the lights are using the battery power and starving the ignition and fuel pump of power. Connect a volt meter across the battery, engine off should get a reading of about 12.8 volts, start the engine, at 1500 rpm reading of 13.5 to 14.00 volts approx., switch lights and heater blower on, reading should drop then build up again to around 13.2 volts. If this does not happen and it carries on dropping the alternator is at fault. Could be that the alternator drive belt is to slack, adjust belt and test again. If there is a high pitched squeal, that is a sign the belt is slack.
