No, few miles is tons.
I don't think this is related to the new battery. It has the symptoms of a wheel speed sensor failing - that throws ABS, EPC and TPMS errors. You need a diagnostic scan...
Wheel speed sensor is inexpensive and easily replaced.

Do you think it needs a blast down motorway??
Hi, No a quick run around the block is usually enough.
Can you scan to check & reset the faults? as that is probably required.

Plus how do you reset low tire pressure light… driving me nuts!!!!
Don’t know the model/year of your car but between certain dates tpms uses wheel speed sensor to identify a wheel with low pressure (reduced circumference)

Hi, Most MK2s use the ABS sensors, so should be easy enough to reset, even if tyres pressures incorrect
Wait until you get it scanned with a VAG specific scanner.

You don't need to blast anywhere, just a casual drive around the block for 5-10 minutes will provide enough time for the ECU to reset the faults.

However, to reset it the TMPS, you have to press and hold the TPMS button until the DIS beeps. Just make sure all your tires are at the correct pressure before you do.
You can find an owners manual here. It might not be for your location or year, but it should at least point you in the right direction.
