They are probably right. Your computer may have been corrupted when the battery was swapped. You will need to get it to the dealer for a diagnnostic which will be about $100 and the probably another $100 if it just needs the flash though it may be less.

Neal, what else could it be if its not reflashing computer
Chevy Mechanic: Neal, Chevy Mechanic replied 6 years ago
A problem with the new battery, or a bad connection at the battery or the ground. Thats about all it can be.
