I disconnected the battery and the lights
turned off.istarted the car and put it ln drive
and the loghts came back on pleas help
...well, first I'd take the black battery cable where it attaches to the frame/ground....take that bolt off and wirebrush the mating surfaces....lug and chassis both...bolt them together for renewed ground potential...then I'd get a NEW battery if yours is older than five because these tin/antimony batteries stop accepting a charge slowly, ten percent per year...get a NEW one~ with refreshed ground things should start to behave normally~
Although the battery may be in need of replacement, there's much more going on than that, IMO. Check out this article: http://www.carsdirect.com/car-repair/5-causes-of-engine-vibration ------> As you can see, the vibration could be caused by: worn out spark plugs, broken motor mounts, loose or disconnected hoses, Faulty or Poorly Adjusted Fuel Intake System (This may be WHY Check Engine Soon light is on), or even a Faulty Timing Belt. Also, if your Traction Control Light is on, that may be a separate issue which I'd recommend having a mechanic look at...Weather is getting bad (Here on East Coast anyway)...Disabled Traction Control System is not a good thing when there's snow, black ice, etc. to deal with.
