Mein Auto: 550iX GT
I brought the battery charge up to about 80% (ran out of time) and the warning display doesn't come up. I will charge it to 100% in the next day or so.
I am confused about how the normal vehicle charging works. I thought the regenerative charging thru the breaking cycle only adds to the overall charge. I thought that the main charging was from the alternator. If so, Jad's cruising on the interstate should have easily charged the battery to full.
Can someone let us know how the charging system works.
