take the car out for a short drive. the lights should extinguish themselves...

What he said. Ironically I’m waiting for my son to bring home a new battery for my GTi, so will be in the same boat! I’ve had this before though where I’ve disconnected the battery to perform DSG oil service and had all the warning lights on, but short drive and they all eventually go out

Only thing I can find so far is should go lock to lock when stationary and drive in a straight line at least 50ft to reset steering etc,

Changed my battery a week ago, panicked when I saw two warning lights were on.

Steering lock to lock and a short drive, went off pretty much straight away.....

Don’t sweat........
