on the dashboard, but I did not turn the emergency

Most probably the battery, check the voltage with your multimeter or remove and take it to your local auto parts store and they can load test it. The blinking park light is a separate issue, most times that is a low fluid condition in your brake fluid reservoir. So you also have a brake fluid leak somewhere. Get the car in for service as soon as you can.


When you do get your vehicle back up and running may want to check to see if the automatic head lights are working by looking at them until they go out to make sure the head lights are shutting off. If not turning off have sensor cleaned ( could be just dirty ) or replaced.
