Customer Question

2005 vibe awd died at an intersection then locked the tranny...before being towed a mechanic stopped and showed her how to unlock it so the officers could push her to the curb and waited for the tow truck. He had mentioned the vibe may have protection shutdown say if the oil level was too low or the brake fluid. When we got it home I filled both oil and brake fluid to proper level and boost started it with my shop charger. It started and all systems seemed fine. I left it idle for awhile as I tended to other issues. When I returned it had stalled out so I told the men to put a charge on the battery...I forgot to tell them to remove the positive cable for safety. When I returned the car started fine but none of the dashboard lights and accessories worked and I can not remove it from park?
