    Use the key in the car to open it, then put key in ignition turn on don't start and press the open and close button on remote I think that may sort it out.

    I think you must have armed the car before removing the battery hence alarm going off.

    The triangle warning light will disappear once you drive it and turn a few corners, the ABS/traction control systems need to re-calibrate the signals from the wheel speed sensors....

    My keyfob didnt work after changing keyfob battery. Did the same thing with the ignition and fixed it.
    Strange how i knew that this would work (maybe i was an Audi tech in my past life)

    Stuck with a replacement cover for my keyfob from ebay though as the internals of the existing one will not come out
    Lesson learnt...
