Changed battery on Passat but the check engine light is on.

Customer Question

I have Passat TDI 2013/2014. It does not start. Changed the battery last night but the check engine light is still on.
Before we changed the battery, it was saying stabilization error and all lights were coming on. It wouldn't even turn so we thought it was battery and changed the battery last night.

Is the starter engaging now to crank over the engine at all? Have you had the fault codes checked at all? Let me know, thanks

Since we changed the battery it Starts and runs beautifully. Have driven it around the block. I don't know what fault codes are
