Engine management has been disabled when you disconnected all of the power, the only way that I know of to get it back is to have the Dealer reflash the system to match the vehicles VIN. They make what is called a code saver or preset saver, it either plugs into the power port or the OBD plug depending on what model you have, every Tech needs one of these in his tool box, and that will maintain the system while repairs are being made.
