charger on it and it read charged, their is no power to windows locks or interior
lights, no buzzing from car door being open. My my dash gauges tweek out,

A catastrophic failure such as this is going to be battery related. Check the battery cable connections at both ends. Make sure everything is clean and tight. Remove the battery and have it load tested. Depending on what kind of charger you have it might not charge a very dead battery. Put Vaseline on the battery cable connections at the battery to prevent corrosion in the future. Hope that helps! Jim
