Fan running high, kernel task taking up 500% cpu - nothing running?

Text:

So I recently replaced the battery - and the camera cable connector disconnected from the logic board. Everything else is connected fine. When I powered back up - Kernel Task was up to 500% and fans spinning at 6200rpm.
 
There was no issue whatsoever before the replacement - and this is the only thing that went wrong during the battery replacement.
 
I have tried resetting the SMC and the PRAM - still the same thing.
 
Any thoughts?

Edit: Ran ASD - came back with the camera issue (Which is known)

Also came back with SMC issue (PFM006)
