Battery discharge


New member
I used to get that message all the time on my Kia Forte, its because your draining battery power. Lets say you go to acc (push button once without foot on the brake), when the engine is off and listening to the radio. The battery is not charging when the engine is off, so its just warning you its on battery power. Steering lock may be the same type of message, haven't seen that one myself.


Thanks,thought it was something simple. As for the steering lock,has a service in a couple of weeks. Hopefully Kia can shed some light on the warning.
