    its part of the immobiliser circuit, it relies on the little chip in your key being picked up by the bit around the steering lock to recognise its a valid key being used.

    Dunno what to suggest really, only ever seen it once on mine, took my key out and put it back in.. make sure the key hasnt fallen on the floor and come apart and the chip fallen out or something like that, failing that i think you'd need a tech 2 to see if its the key or the immobiliser.

    either the immobiliser circuit has forgotten your key for some reason or its the key itself, dont know why disconnecting the battery would cause this. maybe something has been knocked around by the steering column somewhere?
