It sounds like you failed to use the preset saver tool before disconnecting the main power supply, this tool plugs right into the OBD2 port and keeps the memory active until a new battery is installed. If this is the case then the only place that can reflash the vehicle is the dealer, runs about a hundred bucks for a reflash.
