Then various problems occur, such as the sudden shutdown of the latter and displaying messages such as “Battery traction abnormal” or “It is impossible to charge the DC battery”. But that’s not all, because in some cases the air conditioning also stops. Embarrassing when we’re in the middle of a heat wave…
