Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
From what you are describing the vehicle has lost voltage and resulted in the issue that you are having. This was likely causes by the alternator undercharging and depleting the battery. What I would suggest as a first step is to have the battery and the alternator tasted. This is the most common failure for this problem.
