Hi John,

Check the main fuses in underhood fuse box. The shorting could have blown somw fuses causing the problem.

When removing the battery, always disconnect the negative terminal first and reinstall last.

After checking the fuses, disconnect the negative termnal and wait for at least 1/2 an hour to reset the ECU.
