    Ok good. First time I have seen it - it was only -10C today and I have had my car out in -20C weather before but never had it show before.

    At first I unable to charge and getting error messages - the car thought the car was turned on even though it wasn't and wouldn't charge. Then after many attempts and 20 minutes passed - the battery heating msg appeared.

    I didn't see any error messages, but I did get a glitch, in that the warming/charge started immediately instead of on the timer.

    You will get the occasional firmware glitch, it seems. Once I was about to close the garage door when I noticed that the headlights were still on. I had to get back into the car and turn the key on, then off, to get them to go out. (That might be a Canadian-only glitch, given the daytime running lights.)
