BATTERY MONITORING SYSTEM

The Intelligent Power System Management (IPSM) continuously monitors the condition of the 12V battery. If excessive battery discharge occurs, the system begins to shut down non-essential electrical systems in order to protect the battery.

If the IPSM calculates that the battery's condition is not within the set parameters, the instrument panel displays a warning message. The message is displayed if the electric motor is not running. After 3 minutes, the IPSM begins shutting down the vehicle's systems. Normal system operation resumes when the electric motor is started.

CAUTION

Only start the electric motor if it is safe to do so, in order to avoid damages to the vehicle’s systems.

NOTES

If the instrument panel displays a warning message, drive the vehicle to allow the battery to recover to an acceptable level. Drive the vehicle for at least 30 minutes in temperatures above 0°C, or at least 60 minutes if the temperatures are below 0°C. If normal system operation does not resume when the electric motor is switched back off, the battery may not have been sufficiently charged. If safe to do so, restart the electric motor. If problems still exist, contact a retailer/authorised repairer.
