alternator or battery issue????
I have a 2010 Traverse; while driving to work yesterday, the car went into "battery saving mode", or something like that and the air conditioner went off. While driving home, the same thing happened. I drove about 3 or 4 miles, then got a "service battery charging system" message (I think that was the wording). After about 20 more miles, the ABS light went on, the battery light went on, then one by one, just about every possible warning message was displayed. I stopped at a stop light and the entire car simply shut down. I coasted to the shoulder and called a tow truck. Took about 40 minutes for the tow truck to arrived; whe the truck arrived, the driver tried to turn my car on and nothing happened. After the 30 minute drive to my home, when we were taking the car off the flat bed, the car turned on, but the battery light stayed on. Has this issue been reported before? Is this a battery issue? an alternator issue? a computer issue? something that would be covered by the 100,000 mile/5 year warranty?
