Unfortunately there is no such device installed in our GL and not sure if there are any available in the market. However as the probability of a drained battery due to malfunction will happen once between 2-3 years, it is prudent to have the battery checked once a year (especially before going to long trips) just to be safe or better every 6 months as a preventive measure. Most of the time a problem with the battery will manifest signs of problems such as dimming lights, hard starting and finally charging light indicator that will lit intermittently to advise you that there is a problem in the charging system.

chairman, sa manual kasi natin may battery saver na nakalagay for the interior lights and I have tested them as well kasi minsan di naisara ng ayos yung trunk door tapos nakaset yung switch ng interior light sa door. kinabukasan wala naman naging problem sa battery and namatay ng kusa yung ilaw sa loob.

yung sa headlights naman may "if equipped" na note sa manual natin kaya i'm not sure kung meron nga talaga ito. ayoko naman itest na iwan yung headlight na naka on at baka biglang ma drain yung battery.

Nowadays the interior lights have a timer system if you switch it to the door open position. Once the door is closed there is a timer that switches the light off. These systems are already available in most cars nowadays. Now on the headlight system, I have to check out if there will be a buzzer sound that will go off once you leave it on as you switch the keys to off (which I believe there is). Automatic switch off systems for headlights are for high end vehicles only and I don't think (with cost in mind) that our GL is equipped with this system.

I am under the impression that the question is directed to a system that actually does not drain the battery by either cutting off the supply once the battery reaches a critical voltage or jumps starts it when it is weak.

Nice one Bin. Maybe we can do it as a 1 minute experiment and let's see what happens. Kung magdamag naman eh baka ma-drain ang battery.

There is also an audible sound when you forgot to put down your handbrakes and run off.

Audible sound also when you shut down the engine and open the driver's door with the keys are still in the ignition socket.

I hear two alarm beeps when you shutdown your engine in hazard mode.

A triple alarm beep sounds when you arm the alarm and atleast one door is ajar.

So far ito pa lang yung features na nonotice other than what sir bin and chairman mentioned.

im thinking of buying a gadget na nakakabit sa cigarette lighter socket, parang sa battery voltage lang siya pero na monitor din niya yung charging status ng battery. with that alam ko kung humihina na yung karga ng battery ko.
