Problem with dash display and sound after a jump start

I am having problems with my Cruze after its battery died and it received a jump start.

Any idea's what this could be? The display works for showing time/temp and radio station but no music plays. No warning alerts either or turn signal sound. Also, the display will not show fan speed/climate changes as it previously did. Any ideas what this could be? I do have an extended warranty on the car but I don't think the radio system is covered and I don't want to have to pay a diagnosis fee. Any help or advise would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi, I am having a similar issue after jumping my 7 month old battery. My question is - When you say to disconnect the battery for a while then reconnect: about how long is a while? and when I change batteries I have a 12V backup supplied through the DTC. Should I energize the computers through the DTC for the reset you are recommending?
Also, i thought I read some some back about a reset sequence for the Body Control Module but haven't been able to find it this time. Are you aware of it??

P.S. I have just replaced the 7 month old Walmart/Johnson Controls battery

Thanks, Rick

I'd just disconnect the battery. As long as the driver's door is closed when reconnecting, the only annoyance of the lost power is you're prompted to roll the window down and back up. Even the radio station presets are kept. If you keep things powered, you're not rebooting.

As for how long, I'd say a couple of minutes.

If you don't follow my advice to keep the door closed, you may be greeted with a power steering failure message. If that happens, just close the door and try again.
