I would disconnect negative terminal for an 1/2 hour, re-try before I called a tow truck. (Reboot)
Im not an expert.

No need to post multiple threads on the same question, it's confusing and most forums dislike the practice. Check the mega fuse on your battery positive terminal, most likely popped it.

On my 2013, the battery positive side has two terminals, it’s between those two on the battery.
