Had to jump it...

Had to jump it off for 2days and today it didn’t want to shut off. When it finally did shut off the dash light stayed on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Fuses & bulbs would allow lights to stay on ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

Replaced battery’s in fobs. New car battery. It is not recognizing one of the Fobs

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I am researching on what way I need to go first. I have read there is a software update issue, lock mechanism issue in the steering column, wiring connection issue on ignition

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Pray, mommy of 4 needs a little help
