DSC Light problem

Hi I'm a newbee to this site, and am i need of assistance,

I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction with a problem I am having at the moment. When I plug my Iphone into the 12v Outlet the DSC and Brake warning light come on Amber. I was thinking that maybe by plugging in to the 12v outlet that power is being drawn from other area causing them to show warning.

Any Ideas please!!!

It is possible for the Dsc and brake to fault when there is a lack of power, but I don't think the iPhone could zap enough power to cause that. Have your battery, alternator, and starter tested most auto parts stores will do it for free.

Could be that your battery is juuuust on the brink of the edge of its life and your iPhone goes exactly beyond the limit of what it can handle now.
