I disconnected the battery for 10 min put it back in now I can't get it to start. Auto Zone checked the battery its fine. Charged it and won't turn over at all. Checked all the fuse no luck with starting now

Did you clean and tighten the battery cable ends?

Ok. Simply. Turn the steering wheel to the left and then the right all the way a few times. This will reset the error for the all wheel drive. Next you will have to go-to a shop to program the new battery too the car. About 50 to 60$. This should fix everything
