My 2002 dodge ram 1500 had a bad water pump so it sat for awhile until I could fix it. So the batery went dead, I did jump start it a couple times to move it. Ibve replaced the water pump and the batery but the little red light in the dash is on and none of the electronics work. The gauges the turns signals brake lights the headlights inside light none of these work. The headlights come on automatically and the tail lights work ( like it is in safe mode or something. Whats up? Does the computer need to be reprogramed or relearn? Im lost any help would be appreciated.

if the red light is blinking it means you need to either charge the battery or get a new 1.. if its a good battery try cleaning the termials.
