Renault Scenic II - 'Low Battery' fault, will not start

Hi
I have only had my Renault Grand Scenic 1.9 DCi 04 plate,54.000 miles for a couple of weeks and it has just died!
It will not start..No engine turning over..warning light indicates 'Low Battery'. (checked battery shows 10.6v) & SERVICE light and occasionally parking fault, I guess all due to low battery.
All the rest of the electrics are fine, lights come on, doorsopen fans start, so battery is not completely dead!

Breakdown guy came out put on the heavy duty battery charger on it, but still same error message and no engine turn-over!

I don't know whether to leave it on trickle charge to try and get battery charge up...or admit defeat and take it to a garage.

Do you think it is best to take it to a garage or an 'Auto-electrician?
New to all this ...I used to have an old nissan with no electronics...and only went wrong when I forgot to put petrol in!!
If any one could help I would be really grateful. Thanks

Welcome to the forum if the battery only has 10 volts its not enough to start the car,you will need a new battery or trickle charge overnight but i reckon the battery has failed

Most autofactors will load test the battery for free in the hope of a sale

Hi Thanks for the reply.

I bought a high quality eletronic battery charger and managed to get the voltage up to 13.8volts after about 0 minutes.

But the problem is worse now!
The car still will not start but it is now giving me a 'Parking brake' error and a 'Low Oil pressure error' as well as the service light being on!

I think the breakdown guy was a bit rough and ready with his jump leads yeterday and I'm wondering if this could have made the problem worse!

Again if anyone has any words of advice I would be really grateful, or I guess my next stop is a Renault garage!

hi, you have three fuses (two small and one big) on the positive terminal of the battery. these often blow if a battery booster or jump leads are incorrectly connected. i would check these fuses
