Hello and welcome

There is a good chance that a couple of fuses have burned out, this happens often during battery replacement, please check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood, start with the larger 120A alternator fuse, it has a clear cover on it which can be removed to inspect the filament, let me know if this fuse is good or not and it would also help if you have a 12 volt test light or voltmeter handy. Thanks.
