Got a check gauges message, and it went away.

today after I "loaded" my son in the car I turned on the ignition and saw the check gauges message showed up, and all lights on dashboard were on....., above the odometer, all gears indicators showed like [P][N][R][D], I can't really remember the exact order.

I turned the key and the car started and stalled, so I rushed back and grab a pad checked all info about this message and ODB pull a U1411 code.

I also found that I can't use my remote key to lock the car, I tried both keys none of them worked

It started to rain and we have to cancel our plan and stay home, after I "unloaded" my son I returned back to the car and gave it a last try, and guess what? It started normally, but with check engine light on.

I checked again with ODB and still U1411 and I cleaned the code started the car again, this time everything works fine

what I've done recently to my car?
After not driving it for 3 months, the battery is dead when I came back home, so I replaced a battery.
Yesterday we travelled about 400KM on highway and everything was fine.

I did some google search and ppl say things like ignition switch, fuel sender, or even junction box (broken fuse?), where should I start to dig? Thanks.

Since you recently changed the battery, I'd double check the cable connections to make sure they are tight.
