You need a new battery. Have the battery tested and or replaced instead of jump starting your car. Much easier I would think. Then add some air to your tires to get the proper pressure. The 4X4 light is due to a weak battery. Here is a link to describe it much better...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLTmY2VyJwM

Your battery is no good...it does not have enough juice to start the vehicle or work any of the instruments. Replace the battery and you should be fine.

If all the warning lights on the instrument panel are on, but the car isn't responding while your driving it. It is more likely it is a charging problem involving a possible short in or out from the alternator. The battery simply provides the start power. The alternator continuously generates the voltage. Have a Technician check the individual wires, not just the system
