Possibly the main batttery got too much discharged over the longer stay. For the ABS/ESP- start the engine and smoothly turn the steering from center to full left, then full right and then back to center position. This should recalibrate the steering angle sensor.

Check the tire pressures and then the runflat warning system can be reactivated in the settings menu of instrument cluster.

Best Regards,
