my kia sephia 2000 1.8L with automatic transmission

start car , no problem

after that turn on headlight,, no problem too

but after 10 minutes, car will shut off

try starting car without turn off headlights , the car just shut off after 1 seconds

turn off all light, car will start just fine

my question is : my headlights is cause big drain in alternator ?

Due to the age of your Kia, and not much other info given.....

My suggestion is to have the alternator tested and the battery load tested(takes a special purpose meter tool) to see if both are functioning correctly. the headlights have a fairly large electric draw, and a weak battery or alternator can cause the concern you post of. Good luck! :)
