Question about 2005 Dodge Stratus
Lights left on all night, battery died, replaced battery, no clicks, no buzzing, nothing when turning key to start.
Sounds like you have a problem with the primary ground wire. You may need to tighten or clean it or even replace. The secondary ground is allowing the things work.

check your key remote if it is not programmed the alarm will go into the kill switch mode and will not allow you to start your engine Having the same trouble with one of my keys I haven't found a way to reprogram it without calling dealer and paying a chunk.

I had same problem w/ my '88 Ram50. Turned out to be bad contacts on the battery cables. Temp fix and test was to put a little screw between the post and the end connector. Didn't have a problem then, so I replaced the cables.

just a thought but are your front wheels turned sharply ?are the wheels up against a curb ? this sometimes puts pressure on the sterring lock and wont allow the key too turn without grabing the wheel and forcing it ? the fact that the battery went dead should not affect the ability for the key too turn unless the igntion switch melted ? not sure on your model if the switchs is behind the lock cylinder or further down the column ? try turning the whell and see if it works good luck
