You did the biggest NONO ever, if you disconnect a battery cable with the engine running it can send a voltage spike through your electronics causing all kinds of problems. I recommend you take it to a shop you trust and have it checked out.

No we disconnected the jumping cables not the battery cables.

Whew, good, then either the main fuse has blown or the harness you replaced is hooked up wrong or the alternator is bad, if it is a reman alt I would have it tested, I have ran across bad remans in my years.
