    Apologies if this has been asked before!

    i just swapped my battery for a new one on my 09 A3 sportback 2.0 tdi and when I turned the ignition on I have both the above mentioned lights on,is this a common thing,have I done something wrong changing the battery and what the easiest way to get them cleared? Tried dash commander that I use on my scoob and it showed no codes.

    any help much appreciated.

    Probably need VCDS to reset steering angle sensor, could try turning lock to lock and see if resets. Have you driven it yet?
