Hi, 2 weeks into my EX30 Ultra experience and it’s thrown up a fault. “Unable to charge 12V battery. Stop safely. Service required.”

Has anyone else experienced this? Is at a software glitch or a hard problem?

Welcome to this forum.

There's been at least one other report of a similar instance and they had to have the car recovered, but I can't recall whether a detailed explanation was given - or even which forum it was in.

Thanks for the welcome and reply. I’ve found similar in other Volvo forums without any identified resolution. I’ll wait for Volvo Assistance and update this thread.

Volvo assistance called me annd advised me to drive to dealer. That was a huge mistake as 12v battery lost all power, the car simply stopped and would go no further. Eventually recovered to dealer for investigation.
