Post New battery put in, now dash lights not working?

I am new to the forums, so I apologize in advance if I posted this in the wrong place! I have a 2003 ML350 SUV, and during this cold storm..developed a dead battery! Had a new put in. Since I drove home today in the daylight, I didn't notice the dash lights not working. I do have the gauge turned all the way as bright as it will go. As far as the dash goes, three circles..gas, speed, temp. Only ONE is working. The only two are COMPLETELY dark. Not an ounce of light. I had never had a problem with these before, so I'm definitely assuming something with the new battery has caused it. Anyone know what I can do, if I can just fix this myself? Thank you so much!
