Please tell me you didn’t take the battery cable off with it running, if you did you may have damaged the computer on top of having a locked up torque converter. You need to have the battery load tested and replaced if it failed, then run a voltage drop test on the battery cables and replace them if they fail. That should take care of the start and run systems. The only fix for a locked torque converter is a new one installed and that means the transmit has to be removed.

Torque converter clutch solenoid and also not a good idea to remove battery terminal with engine running with vehicles that have computers in them can short out the computer.
