My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you have not had the fault codes checked/read out this needs done.I have seen issues with the immobilizer itself cause this issue here due to the battery being disconnected and reconnected.It may have caused the theft system to engage and cause this here.Try locking and unlocking the doors with the remote or key and see if this corrects the fault.If this does not work then the codes will need read out to help diagnose the issue.It may need a security relearn by a dealers or authorized repair centers computer to resolve this as well here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
