Hi there,

More than likely you still have a half flat battery.

Replace battery or put a charger on it to see if it recovers.

The engine may need to relearn, but that will happen when you drive it.

I doubt you need a fuel pump.

It may need learn it's target idle speed.

Was it running ok, before you were listening to the radio?
