I have a 1991 honda civic lx 1.5, 197xxx miles.
This first started while driving - car acted like it was out of gas. Then the rpm's were jumping all over. If I used my signal, I could hear it through the radio. Then the radio quit working. After getting home, I tried starting it, I had to jump it to start - then everything seemed fine. After a couple of minutes, none of the lights worked, rpm, spedometer, radio - everything electric quit. Then the car died. I jumped it again - started right up. Died after 20 seconds. Now engine will not even turn over. There is nothing when I turn the key. Not even sure what to check. Please help!

Could be the alternator not putting out or the battery is not taking the charge-I'll check the alternator 1st.
