You are describing a very dead battery or poor battery connection.
Remove the battery and have it load tested and check the battery terminals.

I'm having the same problem but I have not been able to start fixing . I have done some research and found other owners with the same or similar symptoms. Based on what I have read the most , it could be a glitch to the motherboard caused by the alarm system . Some owners were told that it was the starter or the alternator . Some people replaced these and kept on having the same problem . My guess to fix this is trying to reset ( or disable in the worst case scenario) the alarm system and checking all the fuses and a little black box located in the fuse area . Since I have another car , I have not found the time to play with it . Please let me know if you already fix it or if my guess will work. .
Thanks

I had this issue with my 2013 Verano (leather). I thought it was my keyfob battery when it didn't start remotely. Then I thought it was the car battery when I discovered nothing was working. Turned out, the blind side detection system failed and caused the whole electrical system to go out.
