After reading some current posts over the weekend concerning similar situations, I decided to try resetting the alarm system using the door locks. Sure enough, the car started right up. Apparently with the car being moved around the body shop so much and never getting the battery back to a full charge, it died. Also the battery was disconnected a few times which threw the anti-theft system into a tailspin. So now with a full charge, and the doors locks activated, everything is back to normal.
Thought I'd post this to help some other poor soul in the future. Thanks for your posts that helped.
