When battery is disconnected, the engine computer needs to relearn and during this period, you might have performance and idling issues. A little driving should solve the problem but if the alternaotr is bad, it is not going to work.

Let the computer relearn by going for a drive around. It might take a while before it relearns and during this period it can act funny while idling.

Lets start with this first if problem was not there previously.

Ig the Maklfunction Indicator light is showing, get a free scan done at parts stores and let us know the EXACt trouble code.
