Unhappy Any Ideas?

So i'm not exactly too mechanically mechanically inclined and was hoping to find some advice here.

I have a 2006 WK SRT8 that i keep garaged and drive for fun. I live in CT and the weather here the past few months has been nothing but snow and temperatures ranging from +20F to -20F. Because of that I haven't driven the beast in quite some time.

So the roads were clear and the sun was out the other day and I decided to take the SRT8 out. I jumped in, turned the key and had a few clicks on the starter and all of the EVIC warnings pop up so I figured it was a dead battery from cold weather and not being used.

I tried jumping it but nothing would work and I had to leave for work so I haven't been able to look at it in a few days. I went to play around with it today and NOTHING works. I mean when I say its dead, I mean not a single light comes on or crank happens when I turn the ignition over. Strangely enough though I can hear some strange electrical clicks around my dash area when I do try, and they continue on at a rapid rate until I open the driver side door.

Does this purely sound like a completely dead battery? Or something more like a starter or alternator issue?

Re: Any Ideas?

I just went through that with my 2008 SRT8. There is a factory recall on the key fobs. The dealer replaced them at no cost to me. Now im having gage problems.
