How to Reprogram after Battery Replacement

I just replaced the car battery. Did not keep the power on. On startup the ABS light was on, turned the wheel lock to lock and the light went out. Radio memory etc. all work.

But... the fuel gauge, RPM counter, etc. not do work. Also, it looks like all the settings (temp), have defaulted to factory setting. BC etc. are not working, including service interval green lights.

How do I reset all these?

Please help.

I've replaced, disconnected for couple months few times, but once I got new/recharged battery, everything worked fine as before.
I''m curious if you have any other electrical problems..

Mine ended up being the alt. I replaced the batt and had simular symptoms as you describe.......$132.00 later, a rebuilt Alt from O'Rellys, fixed it and the lights went away

Went back to the battery. Removed both cables from battery. Shorted them for one hour (to erase any memory mulfunctions.) Reconnected battery and everything is working fine now.

BTW, the aternator is OK. 14.3 volts under load. Normal with engine off is 12.3 v.
