You should be able to bring up the Hidden OBC Menu and be able to monitor you Voltage directly on the OBC display.

Crazy battery/charging Voltage can generate some strange faults and cause the dashboard to light up like a Christmas tree!

Would have never believed this until I witnessed it first hand.
I would trust JFOJ on this one. He's been working on cars for more years than you've probably had hot meals! Or wait.. was that someone else?

Change battery, voltage regulator, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, and fuel filter and everything should be good to go for many years to come! PM FOR THE WIN!!
