I changed the dash clock without disconnecting the battery

This answer was rated:

I changed the dash clock without disconnecting the battery first. When I clipped the wires going to the clock, I heard a "click" that seemed to come from under the steering wheel. Now the clock works but ... when the car is off the power locks don't work (when I turn it on they do). Also, the clock does not keep the time in memory - it shows 1:00 when I start the car. In addition, when I start the car, the A/C is off and when I turn it on, it works but the default temp setting is 75F, regardless of the last temp setting. It is almost as if all of those things are no longer receiving power from the battery, but rather the alternator only when the car is running.
