How old is your battery and does it hold a charge? It sounds like a typical low battery freak out of the system. Try unhooking negative connection to battery. Wait a while and charge battery and reconnect and see what happens.

Agree with Scott. If it is the original battery it is time to get a new one. Also clean all the battery terminals before putting them back on.
