While the car was in neutral today, the following messaged popped up:
"Traction Battery Power Low Charge When Not In N position"
The car was being pulled through an automatic car was in neutral. After the car wash we put it in Park and the message remained. We then turned off the car and restarted it. The message then went away.
Can anyone tell me what this message means?
Much appreciation in advance.

The hybrid high voltage traction battery is NOT charged while the "transmission" is in Neutral.

Because of that, you should NOT enter an automatic car wash when the charge indicator for the traction battery is at the bottom......or very near to it. It is possible for it to get so low during that minute or two that it won't run when you come out the other side.

It is a good habit to get into to turn OFF any electrical accessories when in Neutral.
Radio, AC, blower fan, headlights, etc.
That should reduce the draw enough to safely make it through.
