Renegade electrical problem

Hi all
New to Jeep and to this forum so any advice appreciated.
Bought a 2nd hand 2015 opening ed. 4x4 2.0L DiD four weeks ago and alls been well. Yesterday returned to car after 4 hours and got a 'key fob not recognised' message. Messed around with key fob and key for a while and got all sorts of different messages and faults up, Turns out the battery was flat (dont know why). Started Jeep with jump leads ok but then had the constant orange engine light on and the start stop feature had been disabled, also lost the gear shift indicator. Got home, disconnected and reconnected battery and the engine light and start stop feature went back to normal. However I have still lost the gear shift indicator. What is also curious is that i seem to have also lost all the menu options (except 'buzzer') on the steering wheel switches under 'safety and assistance', so i cant see if the system is still turned on. These were all there when i picked up the car 4 weeks ago.
Does anyone know of a way to get them back?
Thanks in advance
