Group, I have tried to search the forums and could not find anything specific to what i am experiencing( or I am not searching properly). Here is the story. I disconnected the battery to replace a airbag sensor on my wifes car. After replacing it I reconnected the battery and I had a whole bunch of lights and errors come over my MFD. The normal ones (steering wheel, etc.) but some different ones as well. I had the flashing glow plug light. engine light and the engine fault workshop. I plugged in my VAGCOM and found the following:

I don't know about the wheel sensor since that just came on but the issue is with the throttle pedal. I can start the car up and clear the codes while running and they will not come back on while it is running (everything runs/drives fine) but once I shut it off and restart the flashing glow plug, engine and the engine workshop come back. I tested the throttle pedal on another 2006 VW jetta and it works fine. Anyone have any ideas? Hopefully it is a simple fix.
