Need to scan all these Computer Systems, the fact that the lights are coming on is telling you that there are faults in these systems or a system that links all of them together like your instrument computer. -

Comment 1
I am also having the same problem. i changed my alternator, battery, and even the module, I think thats what it is called. It's the computer system I think. But i am still having the same problem. After almost $1600 dollars the car still has the same problem. TIME FOR A CHANGE. Now im going for a Toyota or Honda. -

I had the same thing happen and had the alternator replaced but found out from an independant source that its the front SAM Unit that needs to be replaced -
