Question: Electrical Problem?

When my car is started the radio and air conditioner does not work however when it is turned off and clicked to just using electrical power the air and radio work. also my taillights do not come on as I'm driving. Also when im driving the steering wheel jerks to the right every so often, any ideas?

Otherwise, you'll need to have it looked at by a shop.
