Car won't start - Battery Goosed???

Just went to start my 159. Dash board lit up as usual but when i pressed start nothing. Decided to give it ten minutes and when putting the key in the ignition the whole dashboard was flickering and dimming. Is my battery goosed? Might explain the laboured starting over the past month!!

Often the case with the 159 you will have received random warning symbols over the last few months/ weeks too!

Had a similar fault on the GT prior to battery death, the Brera battery just died completely but that was due to a shorted cell.
