Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife gave someone a jump with our car turned
off their car started immediately  but now our car
won't start at all even with a jump. It just shows
chevy symbol on the dash? What do I do?

Sounds like it wiped the processor memory and has locked the system, unfortunately the only place that can access the system and reflash it is the dealership. Anything built after 2004 should never be used to jump another vehicle. That's what these battery jump boxes are becoming so popular.
