Battery saver mode

Asked by Jul 15, 2017 at 10:03 PM about the 2014 Dodge Journey SE

Question type: General

Why does the battery saver mode come on

1 Answer

930

The purpose of the "battery saver mode" is to prevent running down the battery by accidentally leaving on the lights or some accessory while the motor is not running. Things turn off automatically after about 10 minutes. That way you don't come back to a "dead car" after parking it with the lights left on. Incidentally, cars without this preventive feature will usually start after a few minutes after turning off all electrical loads and waiting for the battery to recover. I hope this helps.
