Funny things happen on the newer cars when disconnecting the battery, but they should have known if your car needed an external power source in order to keep the settings in the computer. I would take it back and see what they say, they should be able to get things right again.

Have them check the airbag system- it's probably time-

replacing the battery doesnt have anything to do with the air bag system it is probably just coincidence unless they damaged the harness or a sensor otherwise the air bag system is unaffected

Get your car computer re-flashed at the dealer
