    Having a flat battery can trigger all sorts of error codes on lots of different pieces of equipment. Once you get a good battery any error lights should reset themselves after a couple of 15 minute runs but the error codes will stay stored. Also the airbag light will probably need resetting, if its still on. If it comes back on straight away then you know you have a problem.
    I hope this is some help.

    Get the fault codes read, as already mentioned it could be due to low voltage, otherwise seat mats are common on the passenger side.
