Ignition problem? Does the engine run smoothly or does it have a miss? Or a failed wheel speed sensor...
Have a quick look under the car behind each wheel for damage or anything tangled up in the suspension..

Ill check those out.
I just drove car 20 mins then stopped and started again. When I started it again the lights came up again and after a few times trying to start it with no warning lights it appears the battery is now dead. The motor isnt cranking and but has enough power to use power locks etc.

I can feel a slight miss. Feels more like a little lump.

Um does that mean the battery just died or it kept starting but you kept switching it off and then starting it again hoping the warning would disappear?
Sometimes a nearly dead battery with low voltage can trigger random warnings.

Now is the time to get it scanned properly to reveal the fault codes it's got stored to actually find out what the problem is and fix it.
