Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You may have quite a few things going on and it will most likely require a scan tool to be able to diagnose the issue. You could have a bus communication issue between modules, the problem coudl be a failed module or wiring issue, it could just be one or more fuses blown.

Have fuses been checked?

Were there any problems before replacing the battery?

Are the battery connections tight now?
