My headlights dim when I hit the brakes and the car is starting to lose power and has died on me. What's wrong?

Several possibilities; battery faulty / weak, alternator faulty, wiring or battery connections corroded / loose. First step - check and repair the wiring / connections as necessary.

Yes, check the alternator and battery. Could also be a bad ignition switch.
