Default Amber charging light question

Hi

I have a 2010 Precedent and on the dash there is an amber light with a
picture of a battery and a + and - sign painted on it.

My question is what is it and how does it work? It is of course not on but when it does come on what does it mean ?

Thanks

Alan

Well, that light will tell you when your batteries are low. Mine triggers at 50% after I let off the pedal. Usually as a rule of thumb, if you see that come on, charge your batteries. It also is a port for a diagnostics tool. There is a tool Club Car dealers use to hold up to that light to get battery information. Another use for that light is in other diagnostics from your dealer as well.

But for the end user, it tells you when your batteries are getting low.

From CC manual:

IQ System, PowerDrive, and PowerDrive Plus vehicles feature a dash mounted battery warning light (above the steering column) that, when the vehicle is in operation, indicates low battery voltage or, when the vehicle
is being charged, indicates a charging problem. The battery warning light is controlled by the onboard computer.

When the batteries receive an incomplete charge because 1) the DC power cord is disconnected, 2) AC power to charger is interrupted, 3) automatic charger shut-off occurs after 16 hours of operation, or 4) charger
malfunctions, the warning light will indicate as follows:

The battery warning light will not illuminate if the charge is 90% or more complete. The onboard computer
will retain in memory the amount of charge needed to replenish the batteries and will complete the charge during the next charge cycle.

When the charger DC cord is unplugged during a charge cycle, the battery warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated for 10 seconds (25 seconds for Precedent vehicles) if the charge is less than 90% complete but the vehicle has enough power for 60 minutes of operation. This will alert the fleet
operator that the vehicle may be used, but that it must be charged to completion as soon as possible.

The battery warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, at 4 second intervals (25 seconds, at 10 second intervals for Precedent vehicles), if the charger times out at 16 hours and the batteries are not sufficiently charged. This indicates an abnormal charge cycle.
