This is due to one of two causes; your belt either slips on the alternator pulley or your battery is getting old. If you can confirm however that you have no belt slip and your battery is in good condition then you should have your alternator tested. Places like Autozone and Advance Auto will test them for free.

Check to see if there is a headlight relay and check all ground circuits to the lighting system. They are both powered from the same circuit.

Headlights flashing - car does not have alarm system


You will need to take it to Chrysler/Dodge place and have them to reset it! Not sure if You bought this Used or not, but if You did,they never gave You the remote! and if I was You I would get one, it will save You some headaches in the future!
