I disconnected the battery intending to change out the turn signal / light switch for one with a fog light switch. I got as far as removing the horn / airbag assembly before determining I need to get a socket extension before pulling the wheel, so I put everything back together for now. But when I first started it, it ran but the dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree with random warning lights. I turned it off, freaking out. A couple of minutes later I tried it again and it started normally and all the lights extinguished as they should.

Normal behavior or did I mess something up somehow? Is the engine computer confused and needs time to think when you first start it up after disconnecting the battery? Should I have let it run for a while to re-calibrate or wait a bit before starting it after reconnecting the batter?
