It could be that the fuses for those devices were blown when you connected the new battery. If you didn't use a memory saver during the battery change, your car might have lost the settings for those and they might come back by themselves within a few restarts. The car's under warranty, ask the dealer about this; they might need to be reprogrammed.

Next time use a memory saver!

Unlikely to be fuses, but yes, restart a few times while driving a bit.
