Hello. It is common for these lights to come on after a battery replacement. It is typically due to the fact that the system has lost voltage which causes these computers to set codes. I usually scan the computers just to make sure that there is nothing else going on. It is also possible that the vehicle was damaged if it was jumped or if the battery was not installed correctly, but that is not as common.
