Battery not maintaining the charge

I have 2017 Discovery sport with less than 14000 miles on it. Since about a month, receiving error 'Low Battery'. I generally drive around 20 miles on weekdays and around 100 miles on weekends, after the weekend dive error disappears for couple of days. Last weekend I drove more then 250 miles, but the 'Low Battery' error is back. I don't understand why battery is not retaining the charge on this vehicle.
Did anyone else experience similar issue? Any ideas to keep the battery charged.

There is a software fix for the battery draining that may be your trouble. I have installed a CTEK charger in my car and it has a mode to rejuvenate a AGM battery. I use the charger once a month overnight (I drive little kms some months) and the rejuvenate mode yearly.


The low battery warning seems to be way to sensitive.


My Start /stop feature worked erratically and they did the software fix and now the start/stop works all the time much to the dismay of my wife who hates it.

I will contact the dealer for software fix. Thanks for the Information.
