Guage reset

I had the check engine light on and knew what the problem was and tried to fix it by disconnecting the battery. However, after I did that the gas guage and tach stopped working and the brake fluid and parking brake warning lights came on, and the check engine light was still on. I bought the peake tool to reset everything however it only reset the check engine light and didnt address any of the other problems. Any help, tricks, hints or solutions are appreciated.
