How can I reset dash indicator lights which do not turn off following a dead battery

The battery died and there was no power. Got a jump and replaced battery. Now all indicator lights remain on, blinkers do not work inside and the fuel gauge does not work. I'm sure there is some simple reset remedy. Please help.

Why are you sure of anything--your asking a question because you don't know !

Check all vehicle fuses

The jumping of a dead or week battery should never take place-so something went wrong

You use a separate battery or jump pack--never another vehicle or you can ruin the vehicles
electrical system

You always charge & test a failing battery or replace it--unsafe practice to jump it
