I have a 2012 Camry SE. It has sat awhile and the battery had died when I tried to start the car. I charged the battery and now rests at 12.5v. Now when I go to start the car there is no power at all to the inside of the car. No gauge lights come on when you turn the key, but the steering wheel can be turned and the car cannot be shifted into neutral. I checked all fuses, including the long ones that house the alternator, all check out fine. I used my dmm and I have power to alternator and starter. Security light is on inside the car. I have tried all three keys I have for the car with no avail.

You anti thieft system is active, sometimes you can deactivate it by using the key and lock the doors wait a few then unlock the doors, but if they have sat too long sometimes it takes a dealer to reflash the system and reset it back to factory specs.

hmm, the keys do nothing. I have no power to door locks as well. Unless I manually lock or unlock them myself. Closest dealership is 140 miles from me.

You have to do it manually.

Ok, I locked all the doors by hand and I will let it sit a few hours and then try it again. I'll post back to see if this fixes the issue or not. Thank you

A minute or 2 usually does it, if it didn't work try disconnecting the negative cable for 30 seconds, reconnecting it then lock and unlock the doors, if it still won't come out of it then your stuck with a dealer, sorry.
