First I would try to disconnect the negative cable and then reconnect the cable. See if it resets.

Have you checked your starter. Just had this same thing happen with a 93 Chevrolet Pickup where the solienoid connection had gone bad. (wiggled) He and his friends were replacing batteries, pulled the positive lead on the starter and it got enough connection to start. Replaced it the next day doing fine.

Lost all power to vehicle driving home. One battery cable is very corroded. Could it be the battery or is it the alternator?

Start by cleaning, or replacing the corroded part. Charge the battery, if necessary. If the car starts, then take it to AutoZone or O'Reillys and have them test the alternator, usually for free.

Just finished driving car, tried to start it back up and nothing happens. Radio works fine, lights come up but car won't start.

if starter is not engaging or clicks then have battery load tested. if battery checks good then test the voltage draw on the starter,may be dragging when it gets hot.

Battery replaced. Now, wipers, dash gauges, locks dont work and headlights stay on?

check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. also check beattery wires and make sure the positive wires are not touching anything metal.look for burnt marks or black spots on the wires too. also have the battery fuse/relay checked.

Air conditioner unit started squealing and then all the guages quit working and the car eventually died. everytime I charge the battery the car will run as long as I dont use radio, lights, wipers, or...

broken belt comes to mind? If the a/c squealed that ment it locked up. If it locked up? the belat cant turn it, Creating a burn out effect, Hence breaking the belt. Replace the A/c Pump and belt. You will be fine, Unless you overheat the engine from no belt turning the waterpump???
