Battery and brake light flashing?!

Asked by Oct 15, 2014 at 06:44 PM about the 2001 Dodge Stratus R/T Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So, my battery and brake light
started flashing on and off. Random
periods of time when they stay on
and go off. Then my headlights
would start dimming. I figured it was
my alternator and so I went to get it
checked. The alternator and the
battery are just fine. One battery
cable was kind've corroded but I got
that fixed. Then on the way to work I
stopped at a stop light the lights
came on and then the car turned off.
And now it won't start. Any
suggestions as to what it is??!
