Default Old battery now stuff is in “limp mode”?

I’ve been needing to replace the battery for a bit now and I’ve noticed I’m getting more messages about battery drain. No surprise there. I was wondering if there’s a place where they document what stuff gets limited. I can’t turn on my dome lights, the heater motor doesn’t put air out very fast at all, etc. I think it’s a bit ridiculous to limit the heater motor and block an LED dome light yet the seat heaters go bananas..

I don't think anything is being limited. Your car will act all kinds of crazy when the battery is low. Been there. Just replace the battery already. $129 (US).
