Check the security system, they default to active when main power is disconnected. More on that system in the owners manual.

As far as your fuel gauge its most likely a bad sender assembly.

Try "re-learning" the ignition key. By turning the key to the on position and leaving it there for 10 to 20 minutes. Then turn the key to off, then start the car. Varoom! Happy trails.
