Security system went full active. Anytime the main power is interrupted the security system activates, check the owners manual for the correct shut down procedure. Now having stated that unhooking the battery without using a preset saver tool that plugs into the OBD2 plug you can corrupt the basic programming from the factory. If you find it doesn’t run right and some or all of the accessories act weird or just don’t work then your stuck heading to the dealer and have it reflashed.
