Have a 2003 Barina. Driving home and noticed the dash lights fading. Then the airbag light came on before the car lost power steering and electric windows stopped working. Lights died.

Start by insuring the battery and charging system are good. Some of these systems act very strange if the battery charge gets low.

Srs light, crazy odometer then no read outs, engine stalls won't start

Check the battery and alternator wiring connections. Also, check the alternator belt. If it is missing or has no tension, the belt tensioner may be broken. The thumping seems to imply a catastrophic mechanical failure or a small explosion affecting the electrical system, but it may have been unburned fuel igniting in the catalytic converter due to a problem with the engine computer (perhaps it wasn't working right due to the electrical problem).

2003 chevy impala overheated and now no power and wont restart

The overheating will not have anything to do with the lost of power for cranking or the lights not working. Try charging the Battery and start over.
