Complete Electrical Failure - please help

Hi I have a 07 reg grande punto 1.4 sporting and have had no problems with it for over 2 years, however if I have the radio on and turn the heating or anything else electrical, the radio will go off and so will the power steering, plus I get air bag and battery warning lights all pop up on the dashboard. If i then turn off the heating the radio will come back on and the warning lights will go and power steering is back working again.

Has only started doing this yesterday.

Anyone ever experienced this before or know what could be the problem?

check your battery, sounds to me like its on its way out, change it and it should fix your problem
