MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE ALTERNATOR PROBLEM

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse • 270,000 miles

I'm having problems with my eclipse. Recently I've been driving my car a couple miles with my gas being on empty. I filled my tank up and now when I turn the car on, it'll stay on for like 30 secs then turn on. My radio turned off, and my lights aren't turning on. Idk if my lights and all that has something to do with my engine turning off, but I'm just giving you as much info to what's wrong with my car. One friend told me, Im not getting enough power to keep the car on, but how do I fix that! This might be a simple problem, but I have no idea about cars. So please help out with any info to what you think could be wrong
Thanks!

I would start with a battery test and alternator test.

Start there
