If it was not running you probably killed the battery. You can try to jump start it and let it run for twenty minutes or so and have to have the battery tested.

So the warning lights come on when you turn the key on before you start it? Do your parking/running lights work?

Is the gas gauge reading a lower level then it should now? Did you jump start the car to get it going again? You need to please answer the questions I keep asking that are going unanswered or it is impossible to try to help you.

Sounds like the body control module could have failed with the gas gauge acting like that suddenly since the battery went dead. To restart the car after you said it wouldn't start and the battery died did you jump start the car to get it started again?Also does your parking/running lights work?There on the same circuit as your dash lights?

Reckon

Now that the battery is charged up,

Snatching the negative cable off of the battery for a few minutes, then reconnecting it, might let the computer stuff recognize full voltage. Seeuns how at the moment it may be still hung up on the low voltage tragedy?

Just a thought,

Keep us posted

We did jump start it. It's runs and no we cannot see gears change. The only thing that is lit up is the little light to tell us we are low on gas. Which we are not
