Question about 2008 Dodge Avenger
I accidentally activated the alarm then put key in ignition to turn car on and car when crazy and wont start. Lights flicker on and off but car will start if I jump start it
Have you tried locking & unlocking drivers door with key? Not 100% sure on your model but that works for some. If that doesn't do it, try passenger door as well.

check your key remote if it is not programmed the alarm will go into the kill switch mode and will not allow you to start your engine Having the same trouble with one of my keys I haven't found a way to reprogram it without calling dealer and paying a chunk.

If the key is returning to the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.
Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.
