BATTERY MONITORING SYSTEM

If excessive battery discharge occurs, the Intelligent Power System Management (IPSM) will begin to shut down non-essential electrical systems to protect battery power.

If the message Energy Management is displayed on the Touch screen while the engine is switched off, after 3 minutes, IPSM will begin a shut down operation. Normal system function will resume when the engine is started.

If the message Low Battery - Please Start Engine is displayed on the Touch screen and in the Message center while the engine is switched off, after 3 minutes, IPSM will begin a shut down operation. The Message center will continue to display the message until either the vehicle is completely turned off or the engine is started. Normal system function will resume when the engine is started.

NOTES

If the message Low Battery - Please Start Engine is displayed, drive the vehicle for at least 30 minutes in temperatures above 32°F (0°C) or at least 60 minutes if temperatures are below 32°F (0°C). This will allow the battery to recover to an acceptable level.
