If all the lights came on, check to make sure the belt didn't break allowing the battery to die and everything to come on. If that isn't that case, if the check engine light is on, have the computer scanned to identify where the problem is coming from. Most parts stores will do it for free. However, since the lights were dim, the wipers ran slow. It sounds like an alternator problem unless you are on the East Coast and ran through a ton of water causing the belt to slip.
