Battery Discharge

Pulled up to my office after lunch and got a "chime" saying I need to charge my battery. When I look up in the "status" screen it just states my battery has been discharging. Car is 4mos old with 2200 miles.

Fear my local dealer will have no idea why and just tell me to charge it up - extensive history of not having the most knowledgeable techs or advisors. I actually had to print up the page discussing the 1200 mile break-in service as they had no idea what i was talking about.

Any ideas?

I had this warning pop up yesterday afternoon for the first time. It went away after my drive to the office this morning. My car is only two months old. I'm hoping its not an ongoing issue.

I had not driven the car for 3 days when I first received this MSG. It finally went away after a couple of days of driving

You also may want to check if you have accessories (iPod/phone/etc) plugged into any of the auxiliary outlets (center console/trunk) and possible draw any power
I've had my car sitting in storage for weeks and never an issue with excessive discharge

Had a similar problem but in my case the symptom started with a battery warning when I first picked the car up. After a few miles all seemed ok but auto stop start didn't work. This problem continued for a couple of weeks during the running in period. At the first service the dealer tested the battery and found that it wouldn't charge past 80%. Battery was replaced and everything started working properly.
