Default 2008 Saturn VUE Hybrid vin z 12v battery charge question?

Hi, I have an 08 VUE Hybrid that I知 getting a battery light while the vehicle is running. I did the positive cable pull while the car was running and it the car shut off. The questions I have is 1st does the 12v battery charge like a standard vehicle? 2nd question is if it does not does it get its charge from the 36v battery in the trunk area? 3rd question is can I just hook up my voltage tester to the battery while it痴 running and check for voltage and if I can what kind of reading should I get! I must also add that I had the Hybrid battery disconnected and I checked for voltage while running and it showed 36 Plus volts at the connectors so I believe I知 getting power to the Hybrid battery but not sure if the Hybrid battery converts the 36 volts into 12 volts to maintain the standard 12 volt battery?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I just found out that my v2 BCM Fuse keeps popping as soon as I put a new fuse in. I知 getting the battery light and if I run the car too long it kills the battery. Where is the BCM2 located and how can I tell if it痴 bad and does it have anything to do with the charging issue I知 experiencing?

In general, the engine and body control modules are trouble free with few exceptions. When ECMs or BCMs fail, they generally don't blow fuses. Are there any modifications, aftermarket electronics added to this Vue? Remote start, alarm, radio, amp, etc? Repairs to wiring?

A blown fuse occurs from an overload condition, either internal to the existing circuit or short in wiring downstream of the fuse.

No modifications at all

Unless you're willing to subscribe to online services like alldata or Mitchell for service manual info, this may require more expertise from GM to determine the problem. Hybrid systems presents additional electrical and electronic circuits not often discussed with very few members owning one and experienced enough to share info. If I had access to info I would gladly share it.
