2017 Pacifica~Strange Trouble light

Today while sitting at a stoplight all of the sudden my radio blanked, the vehicle seemed to stutter and the right front window rolled down.
When I looked at the speedometer display just to the right of the mileage is a symbol that resembled the button that controls the vehicle shutting down and restarting at stop lights. It's A with a circle around it followed by an exclamation point.
I thought perhaps that this light might do away by restarting the van but it did not go away. The vehicle runs fine but is does not seem to start and restart like normal anymore.
We don't see anything in the owner's manual to explain what this light means.

Check page 206. It's a start stop system malfunction.

My wife says she saw that, but it does not say what could cause it.
The van has two batteries and I am wondering if after 4.5 years that one is bad?

So go have a load test done, most auto stores can do that!

I can do that alight, but I am wondering if a low battery would cause this old trouble light.

As it turned out, the auxiliary battery was bad. But after the time in the AZ heat I replaced both batteries while I was at it.
