Chrysler Sebring JX (Convertible): My battery is dead but my

Customer Question

My battery is dead but my headlights kept blinking as if the alarm was on so I hit the unlock button on my key fob and they stopped..After putting a new battery in I can't even get the gages to come on..Is it something with the security system?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the lights are flashing and stop when the unlock button on the fob is pressed then the reason they were flashing is because security was active, but was disarmed with the key fob.
The instrument cluster not working could be a blown fuse, wiring issue, the cluster itself, or possibly a bus communication problem.
Does the engine start and run?

No I can get any power going anywhere but the locks going up and down ..nothing to the gauges, radio, lights..ect
