How old is your battery?? If your battery is original, this may be the symptoms of the battery getting close to end of usable life. If you don't drive the car daily, do you sue a battey maintainer?? If you have a shop voltmeter, check the battery voltage at the terminals before you drive the car after sitting since lat drive. Should be at least 12.5 volts ( optimum would be 13+). If less, battery may be on last legs

Are both lights on and you get a display message? or just both lights?

Then you will likely need to find a shop with a PST or PIWIS tester to diagnose the problem.

You've got a PM...

Loren, I give up, what's a PM?

Ric, I had to replace the alternator and battery in my 2003 at about 14k miles. the car had not been driven much when I got it, and the battery had been previously replaced. No problems since, and I drive it pretty much every day. If I'm away for 2-3 days I start it up and drive it around a bit right after unpacking. good luck....
