Yesterday the neither radio nor display came on, the car started fine I went to work. I got off of work everything the same no working radio or display come on car starts up fine This morning about to leave for work I put the key in the ignition go to turn the car on the radio and display comes on but car won't start. It said"! battery saver active". I've tried starting several times with no luck. What could be the problem? Thanks

My car has a manual transmission.
The most common possibility is the battery is faulty. As the voltage decays, due to the battery being faulty, the vehicle enters the "saver" mode that you are seeing. The first thing to do is load test the battery. If the battery fails the test, or even passes but the pass is marginal, replace the battery. If the battery happens to be OK on the load test, you will need a no start diagnostic as obviously there is some sort of electrical problem preventing the car from starting. In both scenarios, once the car is running, charging system output should be tested and a quick check for excess current draw (aka, "parasitic power draw") would not be a bad idea in your circumstances (your car is new; the original battery should still be functional). All of the required diagnostic steps necessary to getting your car running properly again can be performed if you request a no start diagnostic.
