'08 VE SS-V Manual
had this happen

hey you guys ive had the battery saver mode happen twice in one week too. thought i maybe had a problem but it went away after some long trips to charge it back up.. took a lot more notice of the voltmeter too seeing it could go up to 15v which i did think was a bit high and then can go right back to 12 while driving but yeah i have heard there is some technology in there to save fuel.. very smart.. features in there u dont even realise...

The charging system is controlled by the BCM and the ECM,and also includes an Ammeter on the earth lead.
Sorry I must have missed the point, what do you mean "and also includes an ammeter on the earth lead".

I too am quite interested in this subject.

if you look on the earth lead on the battery you will see a little device strapped to the lead with about 3 or 4 wires going into it, thats the ammeter
