I found a couple things for you to try.
1. after a new battery is installed you need to keep the car running until it reaches operating temp. Once it gets there for a few minutes turn the AC on full blast to teach the idle pattern.

When I tried to change battery alarm and all lights went on. How to install new battery in Nissan xtera 2006?

Disconnect the negative cable first and then the positive cable and remove the battery. The lights/alarm will go out when battery is disconnected and may come back on when reconnected. Use door lock key fob to shut alarm/lights off if they come back on when battery is reconnected

How do I change the starter for my 2006 Chrysler Sebring touring

You'll need a set of metric sockets and end wrenches. Then disconnect the positive battery cable. Wrap the terminal you removed from the battery in a rag and secure it away from the battery. Follow the positive battery cable down to the engine block. It will most certainly be connected to the starter. Remove the cable and any other small wires. Make a diagram showing where to reconnect them. Remove 2 14 mm bolts from the starter to bell housing. Remove starter. Reverse the procedure to install new one.

Removed battery cables on my 2006 Freestyle. After cleaning I replaced the cables and when I started the car it now has check engine code and wrench light on gauges on as well and the car will not...

Tom, you will have to get the code read to see what the problem is. The one other thing to try is disconnect the + cable on the battery and let it sit for 10 minutes before hooking it up again to reset the computer.
