In most cases, there are two possible scenarios: a bad battery, which will not allow itself to be charged, or a failing alternator, which is no longer sending a charge to the battery. In either case, your vehicle will soon stop running. It I also possible that a failing alternator will cause a weak battery to fail, and both will need to be replaced.

Hybrid Battery Trouble IndicatorNote that if the word Main is seen beneath the battery image, the light is actually a Hybrid Battery Trouble Indicator. The vehicle’s hybrid battery must be serviced by your dealer as soon as possible.
