Clean and tighten the battery cables. Did you accidentally reverse polarity?

Do you get any lights or sounds out of the car at all, like buzzers or chimes? Any lights coming on when you open the doors? Just pulling your battery out while changing a bulb should not have any effect on the car at all, unless when you hooked it back up, something in the car that draws electricity was left turned on, and the sudden draw of current has blown a fuse.
