The battery saver feature is designed to protect the vehicle's battery.

To prevent battery discharge while driving, the following systems are reduced automatically in two stages and then turned off:

In the second stage, a Driver Information Center (DIC) message is displayed confirming the activation of the battery discharge protection. See Battery Voltage and Charging Messages .
