disconnect the battery terminals and leave it disconnected for 15-20 minutes. While the cables are detached touch them together to drain the last of the power from the cars system and reboot your cars pc. Should fix yea right up. If that does not work put your key in the ignition then put the key to the on position for 10-12 minutes. after the time is up put it to power off then try and crank it.
