It flashed only once so far I.e yesterday.I ran the car 20KM today and there was no more this message.I am a little reluctant to rush to the service centre as it is quite far and I am quite old

I would say as long as it's not on I would not worry about it.

The battery apparently ran down - that is why the error. Your driving it got it recharged. That would indicate that the charging system is working. Have the battery checked to make sure it is holding a charge - you would be checking for a weak or malfunctioning cell.

Take it to the dealer now. The Auxiliary battery controls many of the functions on the car. The main battery is for starting only.

Thanks bobkat. MB was not very informative. They said to drive the car as usual. If i break down, breakdown services will just fix the problem. I prefer not to beak down though!
