Default I hate my A4

So I have not driven the car in quite some time, go to start it up, battery is dead. Get the jumper cables out, hook up to my truck (GMC Yukon) and start the A4. It started up, but with an annoying alarm sounding noise, and hazard lights going off. Whats the deal? Is this some sort of security measure? Does the car not recognize the factory key? Is this another ploy to get me to take car to stealership to pay more money?

Can anyone help? Let me know whats up with this thing.
