You have either a bad alternator or grond that is draining the electricity into the chassis. If that is the case, when you turn the lights on there wont be enough juice to power the ignition system. Autozone and many other reputable auto parts stores may chech your charging system for free. Good luck and i hope i was able to shed some light on your issue.

2001 Alero was running fine stopped at a light and went to accelerate car started shaking bad, would not accelerate more than 2 mph it seemed. Then Trac Off light came on followed by flasing service engine...

Start the car and have some stand behind the vehicle while it is running in park and rev the engine to see if exhaust gases are coming out, if not sounds like the cat converter is clogged.

My theft lite keeps flashing on my dash 1998 mercury mountaineer

Hello. While it can sometimes be annoying, the flashing theft light is letting you know, and passers by, that the passive anti-theft system is armed. This system immobilizes the engine from starting unless a coded key, programmed to your vehicle, is used. When it's working properly it should flash about every 2 seconds. If it flases rapidly, or stays on, you will likely have to make a trip to the dealer. Also, if you have a keypad for your car some vehicles allow you to dis-arm the system. New vehicles come from the dealer with that system already activated.
I hope I've been helpful.

Air bag light

You can't reset it. It's flashing a code. If you tell me the code, I can tell you the proceedure to isolate the fault.

when you start up, there is an 8 second system test and the light is on during this period. Then it flashes out a 2-digit code. The first group of flashes is the first digit and then there is a pause before the second group of flashes which represent the second digit.

flash-flash-flash-pause-flash-flash-flash-flash-flash-flash = code 36

What code is your system flashing?
