Hi all,

    I went to Ct. today to pick up the 1990 200tq I just bought from a priv=
ate sale. After driving for about 1hr I stopped for gas. When I went to sta=
rt the car, I tuned the key by mistake before disengaging the clutch. The c=
ar moved forward a bit because it was still in gear. Tried again in neutral=
 with clutch pedal to the floor and nothing happened. The lights come on, b=
ut go dim when I turn the Key. Tried jumper cables, but it would not turn o=
ver. I had to leave it at a Mobil station off Rt. 290 in Ma. Attendant said=
 the owner is an excellent mechanic, but he won't be in till Monday.

    Any Ideas as to what might be wrong?

     Thanks,        Jim
