My dead focus :(

So diving home the other night my car died. Put it in neutral and started her up and drove 15 feet then it died again. I need help.
Here's the funny stuff; when my lights are on, only my running lights work not my headlights. Auto is stuck in park. Power windows don't work, and when I open the door it has a constant beep, like if you left the keys in the ignition. Someone help me please

welcome to FF

sound like a battery or alt problem, every time my alt dies or when my battery starts to fail car acts funny. random dash lights,dinging,windows dont work... just plain weird stuff

i would have your battery tested... then your alt

the only thing that dosnt sound right is that it is stuck in park... but i have a stick...so i wouldnt no there
