If the Battery Saver Active light appears on your DIC (Driver Information Center) it is recommended that the driver reduce the electrical loads as much as possible. This message displays when the system detects that the battery voltage is dropping beyond a reasonable level. The battery saver system starts reducing certain features of the vehicle that you may be able to notice. At the point that the features are disabled, this message is displayed. It means that the vehicle is trying to save the charge in the battery. Turn off all unnecessary accessories to allow the battery to recharge. The normal battery voltage range is 11.5 to 15.5 volts. I would suggest that you contact your local dealership and have them look into this issue for you
