I have a 2008 chevy impala and just recently my car displays the battery saver active. What does it mean and what can I do? Thank You

My car has 86 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The Battery Saver Active message can appear on your driver information center (DIC). When the DIC displays this alert, that means that your battery has a low charge, and your vehicle is shutting off certain systems that may drain the battery of life. The best solution is to have a professional mechanic replace your battery and verify the charging system is in good shape.
