Did you actually disconnect the battery with the engine running? If you did, never do it again, you can cause a voltage spike in the electronic systems and make your car totally useless. I had a customer that did that to his Crown Victoria and it cost him over 2300 bucks to replace everything he fried. I'm with tom on this one locate the interior light control module and replace it.

Just buy a (trickle charger) and remove the bolts on the red (pos) and black (neg) connectors that hold the cable connectors to the battery posts. Slide the eyelet from the trickle charger onto the head of the bolt, slide the bolt back through the connector, mount on post, and tighten nut onto bolt. The nut might be a lock nut. In that case you will need to tap the nut and rethread the bolt. When you tighten everything back up you plug the cord from the charger into an extention cord. Plug in the extention cord and reset the warning to the parking brake as the book tells you. When you pull into the garage you plug in the charger. When you leave unplug the cord and drive away. Don't forget to lower the garage door and happy motoring to you.
