Then "Low Fuel" and "Charging System Failure" showed. Car dead. Tried to charge battery but would not start. Had to roll car out onto street.

The key cylinder where your key goes has failed you could leave the ignition switch in the on position for 12 minutes and then go back to off and then start to see if it will crank if not you will have to have a new ignition switch installed
