The car will not start ,keys will not work. nothing works. compleately dead. on 2004 Chrysler Crossfire

This has happened a couple of times, nothing will work on the car. No lights no cranking, key will go in and turn but nothing happens. As I said this has happened before and eventually started. but it has been over a week now. even the keys would not open or close the door. i tried to jump it with no success except for the car alarm which went on....any idea's?

If you have dash lights, but where your shifting indicator (P, R, N, D) on dash is located only shows a black block (no letters), you may have locked your steering into place unknowningly. Your lights will turn on and key will come in & out but engine won't start. To release: Seat yourself inside vehicle, put key in, turn to "on" position and grab steering wheel and turn it; this will unlock steering and car will start. Hope is works.
