This makes no sense
Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 1 year ago.

Okay the most logical reason for your problem is called logic lock. It sometimes happens when a battery goes dead or is replaced. A module will store false codes. These codes force the module into logic lock it's a term used in the electronic industry. Now the only way to clear this and get your system to reboot is to completely drain all memory on the modules this is done by discharging the capacitors yo u do th is by removing both battery cables and rubbing them together. This drains the capacitors and forces your modules to start fresh

Connecting the positive and negative battery cables on the car sounds very dangerous. I'll just tow it to the dealership.

No it is not dangerous remember you have them off the battery. You toe it therr it will be first thing they do.
