    Have you driven it since you refitted the battery?

    Often the systems go through self checks and a short drive will clear them

    Disconnected battery and...

    Do a full lock to lock on the steering and do a short drive and it will disappear.

    As the guys above say, drive it round a little bit, Changed my battery a few months back - drove it and all lights went off

    How long was the battery disconnected for? May need to do basic settings for Angle Sensor in the ABS module, this is done with VCDS.

    scan it, see what faults it throws up, try to clear. If they don't clear, then check the fault code on Ross Tech and follow procedure.
    Google is your friend mate, type the fault code and type Ross Tech in google and it should bring up the link.
