Had to take my 2018 landmark to dealer this morning to have the rear camera replaced. Very icy morning and on starting the car,I noticed the low battery warning. I mentioned this at the dealership and was surprised to be told it would cost 拢29.99 to check and recharge the battery.馃
My question is if I'd charged the battery myself would the warning message be deleted. The lad on the service desk said not, and I would have to take it in, and have them reset the system at a cost of, you guessed, 拢29.99.
Surely that can't be right?

Sounds like they just wanted the 拢30 off you. I鈥檝e had the warning a few times, gone for a drive and it鈥檚 been fine.

Low battery warnings go away as soon as the battery is in good health.
You do need a AGM compatible charger though.

For around the cost of their 2 X 29.99 you can get yourself a nice CTEK smart charger and conditioner!
