hard to read, but the one that says "FICM Supply Voltage Circuit Low", that's the one i'd be researching. I'd start with reading the computer for the following PIDs:
FICM Sync (should be 1)
FICM logic voltage (should be like 12V)
and the FICM Main Power voltage (should be like 48V)

...If you could report back with those, might point one of us in the right direction.

Did you check all the ground connections?

Could you have gotten a bad new battery? I have seen that happen.

Nope. Start by checking the voltage at the battery while cranking. The posts, not the terminals. If it's low, figure out why. Charging system problem, a drain or bad batteries.

If it's not low, check it at the battery terminals, if it's now low, fix the terminals. If not, follow the cable up with the meter and figure out where it's losing power.
