Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There isn't anything that would need to be reset that would cause these issues. You either have a loss of power or ground to multiple modules and systems due to blown fuses or damage was done during the battery repair, a jump start, etc. Module damage can happen instantly if proper battery disconnect/reconnect procedures aren't used or polarity is reversed.

Have fuses been checked?

Majority of them have I charged Battery last night to fully charge on maintainer still give error messages I have not pulled the fuse panel car starts and runs just a lot of errors now and Ac not working it goes to self check and then the errors pop up

Go ahead and check any fuses that have not been checked. If fuses are good then the next step will be to use a scan tool to see what fault codes are setting and if any modules are not communicating.

Any particular ones or all
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

I would recommend checking all fuses in this case.

Ok will advise

Ok.

No luck on fuses all are good
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 year ago.

If fuses are good then you likely have an issue with one or more modules. From here a scan tool will really be needed to see what fault codes are setting and if any modules are not communicating.
