Congrats for your kill switch

About the warning, could it be caused by battery's voltage ?

Currently with the lights and the cold weather after 20km of P&G using my kill switch my battery's voltage is going under 11V (*) when the heat plugs are switching on, which is 2x8 seconds each time I switch off the engine. A consequence of such a low voltage is that the airbag light is blinking when the alternator is off. As my car beeps only for forgotten lights, I have no auditive warning, but battery, oil and sometimes airbag lights are on.


(*) I'm looking for a good deep cycle battery to replace my 50Ah one...
