2004 escape 3.0 AWD

I replaced the battery, first start the battery light stayed illuminated. I pressed the gas pedal and engine revved like normal but all the gauges went off, then swept like at start up. And an alarm dinged.

I'm not certain but hoping it needs a new alternator. Any suggestions?

Could the wrong battery cause something like this? I got the cheapest I could find, maybe too many cca? That shouldn't cause anything like this I'd hope... Any thoughts?
