This all happened upon installing a new battery

Well hopefully all you did was blow some main fuses, Check the maxi fuses first, just check fuses. Hopefully you did not damage the computer.

Check for blown main fuses in the power distribution box under the hood, replace those that have blown and then hope you didn't fry something a lot more expensive. You still may wind up at a dealer to have the system reflashed, cause you didn't replace the battery correctly. There is a little tool that almost everyone uses today that saves all of the vehicles presets when replacing the batteries, if you don't use that tool you can loose operation of things like electric mirrors, speedometers, radio, seats etc. the bad news is that in your case it would not have helped cause of the backwards install of the battery. Sorry
