the trac off light is on. While driving the brake light comes on (not all the time, maybe several days before it comes on) and when you turn the car off, it will not restart. While trying to start all dash lights goes out along with the head lights. When you release the key all power is restored. The battery is fully charged. Wait several hours and the car starts but at some time the process is repeated. Note: it started this morning but the trac off light and brake light came on. I turned it off and it will not restart. Usually the brake light does not come on right away but now it does.
