No crank, ABS and intermittent light

Decided to do some preventive maintenance on my 2005 X3. Replaced spark plugs (NGK), replaced power steering filter and fluid, radiator hose (was leaking), thermostat (code P0599) and water pump.

When I tried to start it, first it would atleast show all light and make clicking sounds. I thought the spark plugs may be the culprit and decided to switch to old spark plugs one by one. After 2 old ones, now there are no lights in the instrument panel and only ABS is illuminated. No crank, no clicking sound.

Where did I go wrong (apart from doing all these things at the same time)? I read up upon IBS causing issues? Is there an IBS in the 2005 X3? Any other suggestions?

Solved my own issue.Ended up taking the battery to AZ and tried to recharge. Turns out its wont recharge and ended up buying a new battery and my X3 started up with no issues.
