Question about service light on and 12V battery


(Carlos Ruiz) #1

so last friday, my 12 v battery died, i had to jumpstart the car with another car to basically be able to take it home and recharge. since that happened, the SERV light is on. I have changed the battery with a OEM new one but the light is still on. i have also used the power box to remap it, but it is still on. everything else works just fine. I just hate to have it to take it to the dealer to check what it is and maybe just clear the error. any ideas what to do? when i changed the battery it was disconnected for over 20 minutes, so my guess is that the rror does not get errased like a regualr car. thanks for any imput

I had the same: SERV light on after 12V battery change - luckily it was gone off from alone after around 14 days (10 rides a 70 km).

It sounds like the 12V battery isn’t being charged as the voltage appears low. Can you check the voltage of the 12V battery?

The old baterry was low but the new one is good is 12.57 v. I hope it goes away after a few days like mentioned above. So far it has been 5 days and it is still on but the car works fine
