Mdx: My well maintained 08 mdx (85k) threw off 2 warning messages

Customer Question

My well maintained 08 mdx (85k) threw off 2 warning messages last night in the middle of a road trip about 6 hours from home. Messages came up on gps screen (1) check sh-awd system immediately (2) voltage from battery low. I got to hotel shut everything down. Restarted, but didn't drive & the lights did not re appear. Can I make it home?

Have the charging system checked before you start back. We see alternator failures in these especially when they are hot. start the engine and listen for a humming or whining noise as the engine is reved up. The sh-awd light is not a big deal.
