reverse service se light came on the car shut
off and all the lights started flickering and

alternator may have died and the battery is drained , get the batt charged then you can start it and see if the alt. is OK with a multi tester .If you're going to do your own repairs there's a few tools you will need . In older cars the batt. light would come on when the alt. quit on you . Now I guess people are too stupid for even an idiot light .
