    Trust me, you don't want to see the red triangle. But you will see other warning lights that stay lit then turn off shortly after the car is made Ready. A red triangle will also appear in the multifunction display if there is a problem.

    Same thing happened to me last year. I read somewhere that the factory 12volt battery can go bad. I almost replaced it.

    I pulled it out of the car and put it on a charger overnight and let it get a full charge before putting it back in.

    Never had that triangle stay on again.

    The reason my battery got drained... I forgot to turn off my dome lights.
