Why Low battery sign on dash board when playing music and engine is swhich off


Asked by mnanang Mar 03, 2019 at 03:28 AM about the 2013 Volvo XC60 3.2 AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Good day. When I am playing music on my volvo xc60 2013, a low battery
sign shows on the dashboard with a warning sign. It tells me the system will
switch off off in 2 minutes.When I exit the sign the music continues to play or
if on phone through bluetooth the warning continues to stay on.

It does not show on when engine is on/idling or driving.

You may have a battery that is in a borderline state of charge, the vehicle is 6 years old and it maybe time for a new battery, have it and the charging system thoroughly tested by a good shop, that way nothing gets missed like a bad diode or computer issues.

Update Was at the volvo dealership. They realised I needed to change both the starter battery and those in the keyfob. When I changed both, I have not seen the low battery sign. I have been playing music for 20mins without any sign of low battery. Truck is 2.4 diesel so they gave me a 12v 90ah. Thanks tennisshoes for your input
