You may corrupted the default factory programming when you removed the battery, you suppose to use a preset saver tool befor any main power disruptions, this keeps the "keep alive memory" active until main power can be restored. Unfortunately the only place that can restore the presets is the dealer. There are two different types out there the cheap one uses a 9 volt battery to keep it up, the drawback with this one is very limited time before it goes dead, the other plugs directly into the OBD2 port and uses an external 12 volt power source, like a jump box or just a 12 volt battery, and if it looks like the repairs are going to take a long time then you can hook up a trickle charger to keep your battery or jump box up proper voltage.

Take it to ur local auto parts store, they can check it free of charge, u may have another bad alternator,it happened to me, the rebuilt one had a bad brush.
