    Count it as a blessing.......It sounds like battery was not coded...who installed it?

    As above, has the battery been coded to the car?
    Have they fitted the correct spec battery as well?

    Kwik Fit are pretty useless when it comes to electronics and I seriously doubt they coded the battery........I had a rental car that came up with the dreaded engine fault issue and they did not even have the correct OBD equipment for Mercedes.
    You may have to go to a good Indie or the dealer.

    It should come good after half an hour of driving. Same when I replaced my battery a few weeks ago. Initially loads of warnings about things like suspension etc, which all came good after a few seconds of driving. Stop/Start took about half an hour and then it was back online again and it has been absolutely fine ever since. In fact, it activates after about a minute of driving now!

    May just need to drive it until it is fully charged.
