Note that certain accessories may also drain power from the electrical system. Do not use functions that use a lot of electrical current when the engine is turned off. Examples of such functions are:
- windshield wipers
- audio system (especially at high volume).
If the starter battery voltage is low, a message is shown in the driver display. The vehicle's energy-saving function will then turn off or reduce certain functions, such as the blower and/or the audio system.
To charge the battery, start the engine and let it run for at least 15 minutes (driving charges the battery faster than letting the engine idle).
