2012 Focus Titanium "Low Battery see Owner's Manual" after 20 Minutes of Stereo on
I wanted to see if this problem is normal for the Focus under the given scenario.
So, I like to listen to music in the car (2012 Focus Titanium) while detailing it. I have the Sony 10 speaker sound system and after listening to the stereo (USB) at volume 9 or ten for about 20 minutes I got a message on the screen that says "Low Battery See Owner's Manual" I can't remember if I had accidentally left the fan on (i know it would make a difference) but on another instance I got the message after 40 minutes of music playing (went into battery saving mode once and I had to turn it back on) with no fan on.
I guess I can accept it if we just have a very weak low capacity battery but I used to listen to the stereo on my Mitsubishi Montero (same wattage stereo) with a 5 year old battery at the same or a little higher volume for a very long time (well over an hour) without it ever draining past being able to start or even a noticeable drain.
Just seems odd to me that a brand new car would be so inefficient or have such a bad battery. I know the stereo probably uses a lot of juice but...
