Low Battery please Start Engine

My 2017 Evoque went in for its first service two weeks ago and had a software update following a recall concerning emissions. I now get a daily message up on the display saying low battery please start the engine and stop start no longer works, this seems to be known by Land Rover when I spoke with them and has bee booked in for investigation, has anybody else experienced this

RE: Low Battery please Start Engine

You need to go for a longish (more than 20 miles )non stop drive, get the engine fully warmed up and let the stop/start battery recharge as that warning is usually a sign that the stop/start battery in the boot is too low. I doubt in an 18 month old car that the special battery has died but you could get the dealership to look at it before the warranty expires. I used to get this in both Evoques and my last RRS every time I went abroad for 3 months with work. The run above always cured the issue unless, yet again, JLR’s software team have not been bench testing fixes for other problems before releasing them.

Now driving a 2018MY Mini Countryman Cooper S E All4 PHEV, alongside my 1996 Defender
TDi300. I hope to be back in a new Land Rover in late 2019 or early 2020 but am having a short break
To try something different

I don’t think it’s a run it needs I took it on a long run to Redhill and back last Tuesday 110 mile round trip and on Thursday the low battery message came up this has only happened since the software update 2 weeks ago, never happened before.

Sounds like the battery is on it's way out. I got the same message on my 2013 Evoque for a number of months, until I eventually bit the bullet and replaced the battery.

I had this recently issue during January 2019 on my MY2016; dark mornings, heavy use of ancillaries, heated screens, seats, headlights etc.
I charged the battery, took about seven hours with a domestic type charger. No issues after this.
