    I just temporarily took ownership of an 2016 LR4 which had been sitting in a parking garage for 6 months. I wasn't able to successfully jumpstart the truck and was not within 100 feet of an outlet, so I just bought a new battery. The truck started right away, but the little red battery/triangle is on. There is a "charging system fault" error on startup. I drove the truck about 40 miles but the fault persisted. I had the voltage at the battery checked with lights on an engine running: 13.84V, 14.04 volts with lights off. So I think the battery is charging.

    What could be the cause?

    Could the ODB2 reading help?

    Should I take it to a dealer?

    Thanks,

    Henry

    It turned out to be a little wire that attached to the positive terminal which I forgot to connect.
