Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The discharge warning message you are getting is indicating the charging system is seeing a fault and this needs to be checked. Since the car is only 2 moths old this will need to be checked by your dealer ASAP. The radio concern may very well be related as well. Take the car is as soon as you can and let then get this resolved for you.
