I just had my clutch master cylinder replaced two weeks ago. Today my clutch would not get out of gear. It went out for a second and I pumped the clutch and it firmed up. Then I pushed the clutch to try engage it but it made a grumbling sound. Now the battery is completely dead and when I charge it, the gauges keep jumping and there is a beeping sound. I am not sure if these two things are connected but I have no idea.

They are two different problems. When they replaced the master cylinder, did they also replace the slave cylinder and interconnecting line as a unit, or just the master cylinder? How did they determine the master cylinder was bad?
If they only replaced the master, did they bleed the system?

Clutch Possibilities: Needs bleeding, bad slave cylinder, bad throw out bearing/worn out clutch.

Battery: first pull the battery cables and clean the inside of the cable clamps and the battery posts with a battery brush. Make sure the battery is charged, then reconnect and try again.

Thanks. I cleaned off the battery posts and I have power again. However, the shop showed me that the actual clutch would not engage, so they are fixing that.

If pumping pedal makes it work it should be a hydraulic rather than mechanical issue with clutch

Hydraulic is limited to fluid level, slave cylinder, master cylinder, and the tube that connects them
