You're still describing multiple symptoms. A battery problem will prevent the starter from working and the gauges may do weird things, but it is possible for the radio and lights to still work.
Once the battery and starter are working, THEN you could have a no-start condition meaning the engine cranks okay but won't run. A common cause of that is a failed camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor.
The 3.2L engine uses a timing belt that could jump a tooth or two. There should be a diagnostic fault code stored related to that if that happens. The Engine Computer may prevent the engine from starting to protect it from bending the valves.
