Unhappy 08 STI WON'T START , also doesn't see the key

Hi everyone! Need your help and literally ANY ideas on why 08 STI 2.5 won't start. The car was absolutely fine and running, no check codes or anything to indicate that something was wrong, but when the car stopped and turned off, it won't start anymore... At first, the wheels were blocked, and red indicator on the dash popped up saying that it does not see the key. After taking off battery terminals and putting them back on it got even worse, because right now the wheels got unblocked, but now even dash board doesn't turn on, and nothing works at all, except for tail lights and interior lights... If you have any ideas what could have gone wrong please let me know! Thanks!

sounds battery related, clean the battery pos. and neg wire terminals with a wire brush for batteries(most car part stores have them), as well as the battery terminals. How old IS the battery? Could be shorted internally

Did the immobilzer chip come out of the key fob?

Battery is new, and the chip didn't come out...
