To clarify --The motor will never turn off nothing will except all lights as descript above

Correct.... When it's cold it seems to happen more often running in park or driving ...it beeps and the headlights go off and on light I would flash someone ...no other lights go off or radio or heat air condition ...I do have to say my lock doesn't always want to work via my keys ...I have to sometime lock the car from the inside and use the key ...

To be specific ....I turn the car on and let it run depends on how cold it is it happens more than if it's not so cold The console above the steering wheel will beep and the blinkers and headlights will go off and right back on almost like I am flashing them or it does it if there is the alarm letting the headlights flash ...I do have been having issues with locking or unlocking my car with my key ...sometimes if have to try several times and sometimes it won't work until I turn the car on and off and than it works ...but the lights involving the heater air condition and radio console is not involved Any ideas ? Sorry I didn't even realize somebody responded to me ! Thank you !

Please any ideas ? Let me know :(
