Weird?

Here is my story, I went out to move my car, and won't start the stereo said locked, and my check engine light was on, so I get a jump start starts up right away but the car sounds like a putt putt the the DIC says something like low engine power I charge the battery hitting gas and sounds putty still, so I say ok go back to work, about 30 minutes later i go back out to move my stuff out of my car and the car starts right up, with the C.E light on, any ideas?

Just sounds like it was too cold.

Dunno where you live though.

Battery lost it's charge some how...were you running that sound system with the car off recently? I'd pull the battery and have it load tested.

^^^ Sounds like a good place to start, just eliminate the battery as a possibility.
