Your going to need a multimeter to test the circuits.I would start by going over all the work that was done to replace the head gaskets. Sounds like maybe a ground wire was left off.

I would be looking for loose wires/grounds etc under the hood where you did the head gaskets. If everything worked before the head gaskets were replaced then something was left undone or pinched. Did you check all the fuses for power to both sides of them?
