No Low Battery Warning

I inherited an old iBookG4 and I decided to change the power profile from Normal to Better Battery Life.
When I originally ran the Normal profile, I would notice that the battery indicator would become red at 20% and finally would give a last warning prior to going to sleep.
After I changed the profile, I no longer receive any warnings that the time remaining or percentage is becoming low, in fact, the laptop switches off completely at around 30-35% remaining.

Does anyone have any ideas?

That usually means you need to replace the battery with a new one.

I had the same with my MacBook when the battery was coming to the end of its life. Your best bet is to try and find a replacement on eBay.
