No, this is how that function works.  If the display is left on the voltage
function it will latch the lowest voltage that occurs when the car is being
cranked over.  This is a good measure of the relative health of your
battery.  You will notice that, once the car starts, if you cycle thru the
the displays and come around back to the voltage that it will then show the
realtime display which should be around 13.8 volts.
