"Battery charge low"
I got a battery charge low warning tonight and all internal electrics went apart from some beeps.
This was after the car was sitting for about an hour tonight after a half hour drive. The dipped beam headlights also went off so I was just left with sidelights. I sat and let it idle for 5mins and the dash came back to life. I drove to halfords and got a free battery check which showed 100% charge and 75% start capacity so all seems good. My drive home was fine with no more warnings and I've put new bulbs in which has brought the headlights back to life.
Has anyone had a similar issue? I guess I will see what happens when I go to start it in the morning. Could the alternator be draining the battery when the engine is off?
