Dear customer, did you check the charge of your battery?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I haven't checked the battery although I have since this problem started charged the batteries both by in car whilst driving and through a plug in

Dear customer this seems to be a problem in the electrical system, it seems to me that an emergency mode is being activated, I think it could be related to the load cells or wiring, the most appropriate is that you should make a diagnosis to check the origin of the fault, this can be done by any workshop as long as it has software of your brand.
