1997 Plymouth Neon 4 Cylinder SOHC mileage: 81,000. When I started my car today the lights are dim, but my car still started. On the drive to work when I was stopped at a light, the idle was rough and my battery light came on. I still got to work. &Amp; However, when I went to start it again after work it took a few seconds for the radio to come on. My car would not start and my lights were extremely dim. When I got a jump I was able to get home fine, but my lights flickered all the way home even when I pressed on the gas. Now it will not start without a jump. What is my problem? Please help!

From what you tell us, it sounds like you may be having trouble with your charging system. Have your battery load tested and check the alternator output for voltage and amperage.
