Completed diagnostics today and all looks OK. Battery fluid levels OK and hydrometer test shows half charged state. Battery volts measured at battery, with Gunsons Sparktune showed 12.6V, engine not running. Started engine and volts went up to 15, dropping to 14.5 shortly afterwards. Have been monitoring EVIC volts whilst driving, hovering around 14.5V.
I'll be going for a longer drive tomorrow, so hopefully the battery will get a good charge.
According to the workshop manual, P0562 will register if battery volts drop to 8.0 or less for 5.0 secs, but I don't know how this could have occurred, since it was only the battery warning light which attracted my attention, otherwise everything seemed normal; no problems starting, etc.
