Not sure about your question. It could be read two ways.
Way #1: (When I put my emergency lights on it effects my headlights.)
If there is an effect, you could have a shorted ground wire, allowing current to find another way into the circuit. Visual inspection might uncover the problem.
Way #2: (When I put my emergency lights on, should it affect my headlights.)
No, If you turn on your emergency flashers, there should be no effect on your headlights.
Electrical problems can be very difficult and costly to diagnose.
Try googling your exact problem and maybe others have had the same problem.
Good Luck

Headlights blink when i put my blinker on

Look for a bad ground to the headlights.The ground probably feeds all of the front lights,and when you are using the headlights,they are seeking a ground through the turn bulbs.When you apply 12v to the turn bulbs,it is reversing this affect(the turn bulbs are seeking a ground through the headlights).

Emergency break stuck- how to realease it?

The emergency brake does not affect the lighting or lights on your plates. This is an entirely different problem going on. On some vehicles, when you start them and put them in reverse the emergency brake pops out automatically. If this doesn't work, you will have to manually unlock the mechanism. As for the lights, the problem may be in your switch.

After accidentally putting a battery in backwards, inside lights, radio and keyless entry does not work. Dials go to 12 o'clock then normal when first starting car. Hyundai Elantra 2004

Check your fuses. You may have fried your fuse box when you hooked the battery up backwards. Try looking for blown fuses, burnt wires, and your battery may have been affected too. Test your battery with a volt meter or take it to your local auto parts store to test.

The dome lights and headlights blink off and on. I can't drive car at night because of this. There seems to be a buzzing noise coming from the headlight area.

If both the headlights and dome light are affected i would suspect the haedlight switch. That is the part that would be linked to both issue. Door jam switchs would affect the dome light but not the headlights.
