Could be a bad car battery. Try jump starting the car.

Sounds like the battery went down.
I'd agree with the jump start thought.

Maybe you need the old hard reset. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery, touch the cables together for a little while, and reconnect to the battery.

Time for new battery.

If CPO, the previous thread makes the case that roadside service is better than taking it to the dealer.

Jumped the battery, touched the cables together nothing it wont recognize the fobs, did the turn key five times fob in console still nothing.

Headlights are on, no horn no fobs detected, no start

It's pretty obvious that you did something wrong unintentionally when you changed the bulb. Go back and reconstruct the crime inch by ichn until you figure out what you did. Something is unplugged, plugged in wrong, a wire pinched, something.

Sounds like you unhooked a ground or blew some fuses somehow.
If it won't see the fob in the slot you have other bigger problems.

UPDATE retraced my steps again but this time I disconnected the battery and removed the front fuse box removed all connections checked all fuses and reconnected the battery, fusebox connections and said a little prayer and the Damn thing started!!!
