Car will not start up (accessory mode only)

Wondering if anyone else has had this issue. Started when I was just putting something into the car, as the speedometer display came on without me pressing the power button in the car or my my remote/app. Walked over to the driver side, and tried starting car approx. 10 times and speedometer display would come up with all of the warning lights lit. Occasionally a "Service Airbag" message came on. Also when on, the screen would jump between dim and bright about every 3 seconds. Sometimes it wouldn't let me put the car into gear, and other times when I put the car into gear there was no propulsion.

It did this once about a week ago, and I was hoping that this was a one off thing, but every time I have started my car today, I have had to go thru this. Dealership is closed today due to the weather. Will call them tomorrow. Any ideas, or any questions for me?

What year do you have?
Did you press the start button quickly 10 times or did you try remote starting it 10 times? Remote start will not work unless you press the lock button first and ALL doors are shut including the hatch. Then you must push and hold the remote until it starts. You must then press the start button on the dash with the remote in the vehicle before the gear shift will move. Both are part of the anti theft function.
If you were using the start button was your foot on the brake pedal?
