Hello. A battery saver mode light can sometimes be set off by an issue with the battery, but it is also often set off if a problem occurs with the alternator, such as low or excessive output from a failed voltage regulator.
I would check the alternator to make sure that it is in proper functioning order, as an alternator issue can not only cause problems with the vehicle, it could also cause damage to the battery.
