I looked through the '18 owners manual and I cannot even find a light/warning for a "charging station". Do you have a photo?
Is it possible that it says "Charging System Warning"? If it's a battery icon and says "Charging System", then it's possible there is an issue with the actual system that charges the battery...see below:

"Charging System Warning Light The charging system warning light comes on when there is a problem with the electrical charging system or when the ignition switch is turned on with the engine not running. If the light comes on while driving, stop and check to see if the alternator belt is loose or broken. To check the belt tension, push on the middle of the belt as shown; it should have 17 — 19.5 mm (0.7—0.8 in) deflection under a force of 98 N (22 lb)."

Check your manual, page 90 shows what I'm referring to. "12-Volt Battery Charging System Indicator". It comes on when the 12-volt battery is not charging. The explanation in the manual says "Stop in a safe place and have your vehicle checked by a dealer immediately". The message on the dash apparently will state, "12 Volt Battery Charging System Problem. Do Not Drive". Page 648 goes into a bit more details, but basically it says stop and call the dealer.
