    My hybrid battery went bad as well as my 12 volt. I replaced them both, or my mechanic did. However, now the car wont start. When pressing the start button, all the dash lights come on but the start button light is red/orange.

    Your mechanic probably didn't lock the interlock switch on the HV battery after replacement
