Yep, most likely corrupted the factory presets when you removed the main power, anything after 2005 and even some 2005 require a saver tool that plugs into the OBD2 port, without it you loose all kinds of things. Your best bet is to have it towed to a Ford dealer and they can reflash the system and bring the programming back, plus you will get any software updates that might be avaliable for you vehicle. In my area it runs a hundred bucks for a reflash. HTH
