    Hi all

    jumped in the SSV the other morning ... car started fine ... all of a sudden I notice that the trip computer display is saying "Battery Saver Mode On".

    Wouldn't let me toggle between info, and also interestingly, the jog wheel on the left hand side of the steering wheel would not shuffle between CD tracks or radio stations but I could use the mode button.

    Came good after about 10 minutes, and have not seen it again since.

    Owners Handbook says that it is a warning for low battery voltage, however I think it was more like a computer error.

    Anyone else seen this?

    there is a tech bulliten out for a poor connection in the main positive feed line just in front of the flywall, somewhere around there. im not sure how many vehicles may be affected.

    id also go to the engineering mode, by holding the enter button down while turning the ignition on, and scroll down to battery level and see what it says. if its low, see if holden will charge the battery under warrenty, you need a special charger that charges calcium batteries so your backyard charger wont fully charge them
