Hi, I would suspect that with any reasonably new car this would be nearly impossible. With everything computer controlled it is not a simple act of twisting a few wires together. I expect it would be far mor likely to damage something and then need a tow to the dealer than getting one started..It might be possible via the service port with the proper device. Some diagnostic testers might be able to do it. Now if the vehicle is from the 70s or earlier it might be possible.
