Question Greenlight on Dashboard of Niro PHEV

Is there a reason why the green light would come on other than when charging the PHEV battery? I noticed a few times the green light being on when I wasn't charging the battery.

Is it the Active Lane Assist light at the bottom center? It looks like the back of the car with lane lines on both sides. Green for active and white for warning only.

Whenever I charge my Niro PHEV's battery a green light appears on the dash near the windshield. That appears to be routine for charging the battery. When charging is complete, the green light turns off. But I've noticed the green light appearing a few times while not actively charging the battery. I'm wondering what else would cause the green light to appear?

The auxillary battery saver will cause the green light to flash when charging auxillary (12 volt) battery.

Read your 2018 Niro PHEV Owner's Manual.
On page H36: "The Aux. Battery Saver+ relies on the high voltage battery to charge the 12V battery. The charging indicator lamp will blink rapidly when this is occurring."
