Check the battery's charge. If the battery is old, it's better to get a new one. The car's computer needs time to readjust after being without a battery for over 30 minutes. The factory settings are the default, so if your car had changes to the factory settings you might have to consult with the dealer. In my case the odometer reverted to kilometers.

Thank you got it sorted the battery was like an electric welder my brother put the positive lead on and fried my alternator. It still cranks for about 30 secs before it fires up
