if any one finds an answer to getting rid of this bloody annoying warning I will be happy, I am also another who in 2 million mile plus of driving have never flattened a battery by leaving radio on. And this really pi--es me of that if I sit waiting for my other half listening to radio it cuts off and I have to start engine. On my vw camper I ran a laptop through a device to cut out if battery was going flat and it went for hours before that happened. I think Citroen have gone to far on this gimmick and not timed it properly , or their batteries are too lean on power reserve,

I checked all this;
-Interior lights; the two in the boot and the central one in the front (these all have a three-way switch) are set in "door open" position. All the other light switches are set in the middle, so are off.
-Nothing left plugged into any of the 12v sockets
-Headlights left in "O" position, so off/auto
-No obvious sign that the battery is not charging or is weak (I haven't tested it though)
I had been driving with everything on (lights, wipers, 2x12v sockets being used, radio) but on a long trip (750km motorway non-stop) then I would be surprised if the battery was being drained faster than it was being charged.
Now worked out that this has been the normal Economy Mode function doing its thing.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
