Most vehicles will not allow you to shift from neutral or park into drive unless you have your foot on the brake. It is a pretty simple logic flow in the car's computer.

What causes car to shift differently after changing the battery?

Changing the battery will have no effect on the shift pattern of the transmission unless the car has a computer controlled electronic transmission. In that case it will take the computer a few trips to relearn how you drive and calibrate the shift points. Same thing happened to my grand Am 2001, 10 min computer reset did the trick. turn key to on, without starting, let sit for 10 mins, switch off and start up, trans shift problem corrected
