I didn't have quite the same issue as you, but a while ago I drove the car until it ran out of petrol.

When I had a friend bring a jerrycan of fuel, I tried to turn over the car and it couldn't quite prime to start. Subsequently, I killed the battery in my couple of attempts. The announcement started with something to the effect of 'immobilise......' and got cut off there.

When I got jump started I had no problem and no warnings, so maybe you just need these to be reset? Maybe the ECU hasn't cleared itself out properly.

I'm clutching at thin straws here...
