1998 CLK230 After Changing Battery Car Goes Into Limp Mode

I have this 1998 CLK230 that had the battery changed out on it. There was nothing used to keep the circuit flowing during the changing of
the battery. After new battery was installed the car went into the Limp Mode. What do you suggest I do to get the car back to running normally?
