It took about 5 minutes of pressing power and finally I got the lights to come on.  I did the diagnostic, nothing flashed at the beginning as far as old codes.  It took 3 min to go through and it stayed on C 00 for 5 min without doing anything.  Now The red door locked light stays on with the add clothes light lit.  And that is all it does.

Thank you for the help.
