Battery meter not registering

Yesterday I ran my batteries down into the red for the first time and limped home at a slow pace. I charged up the vehicle overnight and now the battery meter is only registering one bar. I took it for a ride and it appears to be fully charged. I didn’t put a voltmeter on it but I took it for a 10 mile ride with no problems…other than I am only reading one bar. Has anyone else experienced this?

What year GEM is this and which battery charger is installed?

It is an 08 with stock charger.

I am having the exact same problem on my 2009. Did you ever find a solution? Thanks.

problem went away after recharging a couple of times. It doesn’t make me feel any better about the problem though.

Wow…That is what happened today. On the second charge, the entire meter just started working again. Thank you for posting a reply. I was about to dig into the dash. Glad I waited.
