Low battery Warning indication

Post by JohnShaft9 » Wed Nov 13, 2019 9:44 am

Since last Saturday I have noticed a red warning triangle, when you first open the door but before starting up, indicating low battery/ start engine light/triangle on instrument cluster. Now this is every occasion on opening up since then. Monday ,the tailgate failed to open remotely for the first time. Is this connected?

I had a professionally fitted Dashcam (Thinkware) front and rear, not hard wired as I understand this would invalidate the guarantee that has worked perfectly these last three months or more.

The dealership took the Vehicle, Disco Sport HSE on a 19 plate, last night but telephoned this morning for confirmation as to where the cam was wired too seeking permission to disconnect.. I gave them the info they needed once i had spoken with the Auto electrical company who confirmed that it had not been hard wired as instructed on fitting. All the dealer really had to do was remove the power lead from the camera.. Car is untouched otherwise as new.

any suggestion as to why this problem indication is happening.???

Hi Mol I think you have probably posted in the wrong forum this is the Disco 5. Just saying as this may be something thats common to the Sport.
3litre SE. Monticello Red. Electric deployable tow bar.

Had this a lot with my ex Disco Sport, apparently very common fault
