Hi, i had this come up last night close to home so switched engine off and restarted, and symbol did not reappear. Took it for a test drive for 5 mins afterwards, and symbol did not appear. Since then today i have driven to work(10miles) and it hasny reappeared. Any thoughts or updates on this issue?

Probably just a glitch....Good old turn it off and on computer solution probably cleared it. If it re-occurs pop it into the dealer.

I had the same error a while ago. As the car was still under warranty, I booked it in for investigation and they did a software update. No issues since then.

When you say just out of warranty - you can extend it as long as it’s not more than a month out.

Just a heads up. Mine is £14 a month.

Key cycle or sleep can heal the car sometimes but you should get the codes read to see what went offline. Remember once that message is shown you have whatever charge is in the 12 volt battery until the engine stops. So if it happens again turn off all consumers and get home or to dealers if you can.
