Saw your pics. Thanks!

So you took positive cable of trickle charger and hooked it to N2 and then connected other trickle charger connector to .... ?

I learned long ago when I took delivery of a new vehicle to always go to the power distribution center / fuses and to push firmly down on each to insure they were seated properly.

I was getting 2 diff voltages on N1 and N2
According to the fusebox lid shows one going to the ESS stop start battery.
So i charged both, using same battery negative as it uses chassis ground also.
Took many hours to charge that also...

If N2 voltage gets too low you see this dreaded screen on center dash. You will need a tow at that point
and better learn how to get it outta park manually! No power, will not allow you to get to neutral.

Thanks for pointing this out, Frank. I just checked my fuse box and found the same thing--every fuse/relay needed to be seated.

On the second day, I received the following message: "Stop safely vehicle will shut off soon." This happened right after I adjusted the temperature settings. I pulled over and shut the vehicle off and restarted. The message did not reappear and everything seems normal. Any suggestions?

I checked the distribution fusebox terminal and fuses and everything looks good.

Just aft of the main battery, plastic cover with 2 simple clips on the sides. Just press them down and feel them click into place. Most of mine were loose as well, just checked.

Had the same message as above and the dealer called me and told me today that my power steering had been shorted? and a new gearbox has been ordered... Im going in today to pick it up. Any insight as to what questions I should ask the dealer to ensure this does not happen again would be great.
