Default JK dead after Brake pads replacement

Hi Guys, I changed my rear brake pads last sunday, due to the fact I have only the OEM car-jack I did it in two times one for wheel and each one the Jk was completely dead only disconecting and riconecting the battery I was able to run it.
After that no issues.

Any idea? I sounds like a sort of "Protection mode"....

I've never heard of anything like this. Maybe you can briefly explain the process steps you used to change your brakes.

You're saying it's fine now that you disconnected the battery?

Perhaps (just a guess) your lifting of the vehicle activated the anti-theft system and doing a battery disconnect and reconnect reset it?

I did all four brakes myself on my 2012 Jku and did not have any problem like you describe. I've been following this forum for 7 years and don't recall ever seeing such a problem reported.
