Oh, and ...my car definitely wouldn't start again after that code popped up. Even a few days later. I tried it again before I had it towed to the dealership.
Okay, back to reading the other p1a15 posts.

The "car with the exclamation mark" showed up on our non functioning work iMiev which had been unused for some time. .. The meter was showing about half charge but I put it on charge anyway and went home to get my mulitimeter and came back to find the 12v battery was at about 10.9v so I put it on charge as well. After a few hours it had reached about 12.5 the warning light had gone and I was able to drive the car a short distance. However soon it stopped working and the warning light came on. I will buy a new 12v battery tomorrow but more worrying was that the charge on the main battery did not appear to have increased. When I have installed the new 12v battery I will try to charge the drive battery again. I don't know if the charging system requires the 12v to be in good condition. I hope it is not permanently damaged!

Yes the 12V aux is a critical item required for driving and charging. Hopefully that is your only issue, and typically it is only a temporary fault. Let us know how it works out for you.
