There was a remaining power as seen on the indicator lights & can play stereo. But the battery indicator light was dim compare to the other indicator lights. I thought it's a battery problem but when I use jumper cable, still won't start. Now I'm thinking if i need to replace the battery. Please help me out. Thanks

Doubtful, my guess would be fried. Does the unit get power?
Check the fuses, especially the one for car stereo. If that's not blown you'll need to put the head unit and check the fuse either on the 12V power wire or on the wiring harness or on the back of the actual unit.
I've seen that same thing done several times and usually the damage is more drastic, consider yourself lucky.
Check the Air Bag Indicator Light. When you turn the car on it should stay on for 6 seconds and then turn itself off. If a fault is detected in the system operation check, the indicator light will either fail to light, stay on continuously or flash. The flashing may not start until up to 30 seconds after the initial systems check.
If there is a fault in the system AND the air bag indicator light fails to light then an audible tone will alert you- it will be a set of 5 chimes (bells/beeps) five times in a row.
Have the Air Bag serviced and the indicator light bulb changed. Since the dash will be off in order to change the bulb, I would have all of the other dash lights changed at the same time. If one goes out, others will surely follow.
