BATTERY VOLTS LOW

This message displays when the electrical system is charging less than 10 volts or the battery has been drained.

If this message appears immediately after starting the engine, it is possible that the generator can still recharge the battery. The battery should recharge while driving, but may take a few hours to do so. Consider using an auxiliary charger to boost the battery after returning home or arriving at a final destination. Make sure you follow the manufacturer's instructions.

If this message appears while driving or after starting the vehicle and stays on, have it checked immediately to determine the cause of this problem.

To help the generator recharge the battery quickly, reduce the load on the electrical system by turning off the accessories.

The normal battery voltage range is 11.5 to 15.5 volts. Monitor battery voltage on the DIC by pressing the vehicle information button until Battery Voltage is displayed.
