If it still runs you will have to take it to the dealer and have them reset the pcm. On newer models you have to use a battery saver any time you disconnect the battery.

no pcm in these cars. (ecm,tcm,bcm,abs module etc.) once the battery is disconnected too long the steering angle sensor will have to be reset back to zero by dealer or some other shops may be able to do it. it needs to know when the steering wheel is straight ahead for the vdc to work and if that needs resetting the abs, vdc and possibly brake lights will be on until it is reset. the engine light is most likely a separate issue.

THERE IS AN ECM, A BCM, A TCM, ETC. IT DOES NOT HAVE A PCM IT CONTROLS TRANSMISSION AND ENGINE WITH DIFFERENT MODULES
