CAR SHUTS OFF WHEN I TURN LIGHTS ON.

1991 Acura Integra • Manual •

When start car, it runs fine until I turn lights on, then shuts right off. Also notice when car cranks, only the front parking lights turn on. Possible short? What could cause this? Relay?

Checked the system and discovered the chasis ground is conducting power when the lights are turned on. We checked the fuse panel inside the car, disconnected all connections to the fuse panel to check conductivity and same problem after connecting the plugs back on, the lights no longer function. Note that all the lights were working prior to unpluging the fuse panel. Any suggestions?
