1998 Audi A6 - the battery had to be recharged. Shortly after, the transmission started to slip and make noise. Is this possibly related to having to recharge the battery?

Eurocar Inc : Hello there! I'm Eurocar ! I will try to assist you as much as I can. Quality research = Quality answer!!
Eurocar Inc : Due to car sitting long periods of time that is more worse than normal driving everyday
Eurocar Inc : Sounds like something internal has let loose
Eurocar Inc : if you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask

The vehicle was only driven a few feet by a valet. How can charging the battery impact the transmission, if at all possible? That is my question.. Please elaborate more.
