Dead Battery, Now Many Electrical Oddities

The battery died in my Z4. After replacing it, I have the following problems:
  • Instrument Cluster:
  • warning and blinker lights on instrument cluster do not work
  • cluster nighttime illumination comes on after 60+ seconds, whether outside lights are on or off

    Automatic Top:
  • sometimes works perfectly, going both up and down
  • sometimes does not work at all, red light next to top control button stays on solid when pressing button

    Keyless Entry:
  • door lock does not work
  • door unlock works
  • trunk open works

Has anybody seen anything like this?

weird...I have a small racing battery that goes dead if I don;t drive the car for a couple weeks, and everytime it causes dsc, brake, etc, as well as my instrument panel not lighting up until the battery is charged and the car is restarted.
