Default 2012 Insight wonít move after starting and ALL service lights are on

Hi guys, I just bought my 2012 Insight yesterday and Iím already having a problem. When I went to crank it, all of the service lights came on and when I put the car in reverse it would not move. It also appears that the radio struggles to stay on. Any ideas what this could be and how much it will be to fix?

Dead 12V battery

I will add:
If it looks like the original, itís done, just replace. If you decide to try charging it, DO NOT do so with it connected to to the car. This is not your fatherís Subaru. The electronics are numerous, easy to fry, and expensive to replace.

This is fear mongering. Cars have had numerous and sensitive electronics for a couple decades now. If one can competently connect (+) and (-) leads of a suitable 12V charger, there is near zero risk. If one can't competently connect (+) and (-) leads of a suitable 12V charger, they should have it towed to a dealership.

Ya, well I happen to remember a few instances reported around here of things going very south if care is not taken. I also do not consider the suggestion to be careful fear mongering. That is job for Fox News.

garden variety care and intoning ppl NOT to charge the battery while connected are two different things ... the latter is a bit extreme and perhaps more worthy of MSNBC
