That sounds like no communication to the modules, an electrical fault, faulty wiring, canbus error, etc.

Get the car scanned for trouble codes, check all grounds, wiring and plugs for corrosion and if they are all seated properly.

Maybe you unplugged or damaged the wiring to the modules somehow when servicing.

What was done on the service? Sometimes a low battery can also trigger those faults, is it cranking and firing up fine?

Apologies if I missed it, what car do you have? This sounds like a brake light switch and/or ABS sensor issue.

I suggest getting A VAGCom scan done to pick up any error codes and go from there. You could also check your cars earthing as VAG platform cars can develop weird issues due to faulty earthing.

Sorry for taking a long time to respond.
It appeared that the Fuse next to the battery is causing the problem. I place it and only thing was left was EPC. It started jacking. I cleaned the throttle and unplug and plug the throttle plug. I plugged the Back light switch but i am unable to place it back. The wires appear to be shot.
