Replaced windscreen...now problem with sensors

Hi guys, haven't been on here for a while, but I have a little problem! I had my windscreen replaced last week, since then I have noticed that the handbrake sensor is on permanently, the brake pads worn light sensor comes on when I start the engine, and the gear indicator light (the one that tells you which gear to go up or down in) is missing! I know I don't need that, but that's not the point, its always been there, but now its gone! Autoglass came out on Saturday and has a quick look and couldn't see anything, they have just rung me and said they will send someone to take the windscreen out again and check it all in case any of the wires were cut or damaged. Silly question, but would anything like changing a windscreen do something like that? I know the central locking sensor is there, but not sure about all the other stuff.
Hope this all makes sense

They often use a long blade to slice through the mastic that glues the screen in, it is possible that the blade slipped and cut some wires in the gap between the dashboard and screen.

Can't see the connection between the faults and the screen myself, they usually use a wire to cut the bond between screen and car.

Yes they do, and it scratches all the paint off so in a couple of years time the windscreen frame will have rusted out, it happens a lot and thats one way you can tell a new screen has been fitted by someone who doesnt really care much except getting the job done as fast as possible.
