Weird battery info symbol


Recommended Posts

Hi folks looking for a bit of help as I cant find this symbol anywhere. 

Just acquired a 70 plate fiesta trend 1.0 litre EcoBoost. Today this weird battery symbol appeared on my dashboard. It's not on dashboard panel as such but in the information display. Its also not a car battery symbol but a normal battery aa type. 

Anyone know ? Its driving me insane . Only pops up intermittently but every few minutes or so.

Right odd question. Do I have a hybrid battery and if so what is it. I know I'm sorry but I'm truly clueless 😂

Your car must be one of the latest MHEV 1.0 EcoBoosts.  They come in either 125bhp or 155bhp.  Probably has a 'hybrid' badge on the boot too lol...

It uses a larger generator instead of an alternator, plus an additional 48v battery.  You don't have to drive any differently and it doesn't need plugging in.  Just helps lower emissions really.

Phew. Thank you lol. I was panicking as i couldn't find out what they meant. I kinda guessed it was an info thing as it didn't look like warning light. 

Appreciate your help guys. 🙂
