Could be your alternator is going kaput.

or possibly a headlamp switch concern. since they could all run through the headlamp/stop/turn/marker system.

what kind of vehicle?

could even be battery cables that need to be cleaned. or a sign that your battery is low on fluid, most cars run their electrical system through the battery even tho the alt is keeping power going. could also mean that your alt is going out. or just a dirty ground cable, i would start by cleaning your battery posts and if your battery is the right king check the fluid level's. get it figured out before you get stranded.
