I have gotten a "Charging Failure Service Urgent" warning 4 times intermittently over the past 2 months. It always seems to happen about 20 minutes into driving after the car has been sitting overnight and the temperature is around 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The message comes on for a minute or two and then goes off and doesn't happen again for a few weeks. I don't notice any other issues when I see this message. It's a 2012 XC60 AWD 55K. Just wondering if anyone has experienced a similar problem or has any thoughts on what the cause might be.

Ever hear a chirp type noise associated with it?

Do you know where your alternator is? If so, when you get that message, pop the hood and look to see if the coupler driving the alternator is turning. The drive gear on READ side tends to slip on the shaft and not drive the alternator properly.
