147 airbag/trc/abs and abd lights on :(

First of all let me say hello, joined this forum having bought a 2002 147and have found it very useful! So thank you all for posting tech advice etc.

The problem I have is that i removed and re-fitted my interior a couple of days ago. I dis-connected the battery and left it at least half an hour before removing the seats. When I switched the car back on everything seemed fine. However the following morning the Abs/trc/adb and airbag lights had come on. Any ideas as to what has caused this? And also as I am guessing I will have to take them to an alfa garage to have them put out, where is the best place to go in central Scotland, and how much is it likely to cost?

Thank you very much in advance!

You have probably blown the abs vdc fuse. It is located on the plastic box thing that sits on top of the battery and connects to the positive on the battery. You will see a little fuse inside the plastic thing. Im 90% sure you have blown that. And it is only a couple of quid to replace. I would defo chal this before you start coffing up money for things you dont need.
