.Except inverter still displays the message low battery

Just double check the number on the old battery just in case it looks the same but is actually different.
Also when I did my car remote one new battery was actually reading low. Spent ages as I assumed the new battery was good.( there are a lot os fakes around as well) Just test the battery voltage with a meter and /or
Just try another new one in case.

I too have an Aurora inverter and seeing that they seem to suffer from the dreaded E031 error(usually just after the warranty period expires) I searched the internet, in advance, for a possible answer /repair.
The best info seemed to come from the german and italian forums (google translated) which indicated that the most likely problem was a burnt out relay, which you already have had repaired.
Some people reported, like yourself, that after the repair, error codes were being seen on the display although the unit was working correctly.
If I remember correctly the advice given was to check that all the panel screws were done up tightly, on reassembly, to ensure correct grounding/earthing of panels, as strange things were happening if this was not done.
Might be worth checking.
Agree with others that there are some absolute awful button cell batteries about which seem to lose charge after very short spells in storage.

Good luck  fingers crossed!
