1995 Ford Escort Front Wheel Drive Manual

The car was running just fine, parked it one night and the next day it wouldn't start. If the interior lights aren't working it doesn't want to take a jump real well, hard to start. If the interior lights are on it will take a jump very easy. It will start 3 or 4 times, but then it won't start again. It doesn't make any attempt to start till you jump it. I put a volt meter on it and when you are trying to start it the thing dives to about 4. This sounds a bit like a dead short to me, but I have no way of knowing for sure. I am thinking either bad cables or a bad starter solenoid. Can you help figure this one out?
