Replace battery and the radio has been in lock mode since the battery was released, so as I was putting everything back together, I forgot to put a shield on the battery, so I disconnected the battery and now the car will not start, and the key is stuck in the ignition switch and will not start. The anti-theft system is locked is lock and can't unlock it. What or how do I unlock it?

So, the vehicle clearly thinks it is being stolen so it has locked it down. This is common when we disconnect the battery.

Here is a guide that will help with disabling it but I am not sure these tactics will work in this case, but we need to start with this:

The next thing we need to do is check for codes. I suspect you will find the code that I attached below. Basically, this is typical when the battery is disconnected.

Please read the info about this code and run through the info and let us know what you find with it, and we can go from there.

Thanks
