Was this when you tried to start it? I'd first un-hook the battery and let it sit for 10 min or so, the ECU will reset and that might atleast let you able to start it back up and get it to a shop for proper evaluation.

Its a dead battery. When you crank it, it draws enough current to make the gauges reset. Thats why they dance over and over again.
