Hi All,

I hadn't driven my (6month old) S60 in about two weeks. Today I start it up and briefly see this message:
Low battery
charge
Power save
mode
The audio system is
switched off to save
energy. Charge the battery

Anyone else experience this?

AH S*IT!

Great info - thanks.
My Fluke measure 12.239Vdc at rest.
After setting up the battery charger and off with the battery shroud, I'm wondering if I should D/C the positive cable and connect the battery charger to it.
I read the link and it's associated complaint. Pretty smart computer; if the battery goes too low the car shuts down.
Heck, probably best to let the dealer address it.
Again, thank you very much!
