Ive been told alot of things but i like doing repairs on the car myself , ive been doing
some research and thinking could be the alternator anyone ever had this problem ?

The dash lights only turn on when the car is in motion any thoughts please :) Fuel Pump ? Spark plugs? Alternator ? Battery terminals ?

Sounds like a wiring issue. Did you check to see if the battery has more than 12V and isn't being drained? Check all the wiring and connections?
