To better assist you is your model just a Malibu or an LS. Also your engine size in liter.
May sound odd - but please go to Auto Zone (AZ) or O'Reilly's (OR) and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. The reason - it looks like your car can throw a code for the lighting system. So this may give us a clue. Also while there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery and alternator. You might as well do that since you are there and it's free.
How long has it been doing this?
How did it start - did you have any work done on the car - install a radio or anything? Any minor wrecks etc? Basically can you think of anything that may have caused this to start or you were doing something when it did?
While you are doing this I will start looking over some wiring diagrams.
