check engine light

So yesterday im driving on the fwy and my gauge lights dim and my radio turns off. i get off the freeway and my car stops at a light and doesnt want to start. to make a long story short my car ended up starting 20min later without a cable jump. (i got a brand new battery abut 6 months ago) Now my check engine light is on? Does anyone know what this can be? Unfortunatly i have to drive like this today to work.

I had that happen to me and it was my alternator. Although, I dont know why it would start 20 min latter without jump. You can always take it to a local auto parts store to find out what code the computer is throwing out.
