you all know that the battery needs to be registered when you replace it , in

these thread i well show you how to register new battery with INPA or toolset32

and this is just for REGISTERING THE SAME SIZE BATTERY

first with INPA

in the second pic double click the command (steuern_batterietausch_registrieren) just ones and you are done .

remember this is for registering the same size battery not for retrofitting another size , if you want to retrofit 90AGM battery you need to register the battery with DIS because DIS well register only 90AGM battery , if you want to retrofit another battery size you have to use NCS expert .

Help me out here? what is this battery thing ( registration ) with what? the car computer ?
So if you take out the battery and say get a sears diehard gold . what happens can someone
explain . will another battery work ( doesn't it just see a 12 volt power supply?

diehard $100
bmw $200

U need AGM battery. It must be registered. Otherwise it wont charge properly. Our cars are very sensitive. If ur battery is low or doesnt get charged properly u will get different errors and faults. Ur car need to know how it needs to charge battery thats why u need to register it. U can go to dealer, INDY, or u can set up bmw tools and do it urself

This method is usefull only when you replace the battery with the same power - 95Ah.
But what if you want to replace it with 110Ah?

I've used nonBMW battery on my 745 2002: Varta Silver Dynamic 110ah. It cost me about 150 USD. The only important thing was to register the higher Ah, and my friend has done it for me, but i dont remember how - with DIS, INPA or somehow other way.

So guys, I just bought a 2004 745Li from a car dealer here in town. He did put a new battery in the car. Now I am getting a fault message, "Dynamic Drive Inactive" about every 3-5 days.
1. He is not a BMW dealer, just used cars. So, he would probably not know about this? If my message is from the battery not being registered, how would go about explaining this procedure to the dealer?
2. Could this be causing my problem with the fault message?
Thanks!

So, took my car back to the dealer, and the tech came out and hook up the machine, found the battery had not been registered! He made the comment, learned something new today! So the battery is registered with the car now. I hope I don't see the "Dynamic Drive Inactive" or any message now!

Regards, Allan

I have not registered the battery I replaced on my 745i. I found that if you attached another battery ( I used my 325i) to the battery jumping poles under the hood of the 745i. That way the car never lost battery power while I was changing the battery. I bought the battery from NAPA and I have had no problems.

Hey guys,

I usually spend most of my time over on the 6 series site but have a related battery question? I just took my wife's '06 750Li in to an indy for the first time since coming off of the CPO for brakes, fluids, etc. I had them replace the battery ($330) as well as it only had 30% life left. When my wife piced up the car, she noted that none of her radio stations were gone and the seat settings were still there. It seemed like every time we took the car to the dealer, all of these setting were deleted.

My question is if it is possible to change the battery and re-initalize it to the car without losing these settings?

Yes, because it's not registered the car's electrical system is "freaking out". Get it to an indepedent shop or the dealer so they can register it.

How can I tell if my battery was replaced or not? I bought the car used, and I had he vin ran at BMW and it was recommended that the battery be replaced back in sept 2012 but if it was done it want done at the dealership per my friend the tech that ran my VIN.... He isn't local for me to say hey but chance can you check my battery, so I can verify it it was replaced or not?

Just checked because my battery is due for replacement as the blower fan function speed flowincreases and decreases depending on the distance I drive, I just removed my battery to find the AH rating to order a replacement and found the battery has the date of build stamped on the - negative post, mine has a date of 30th week 2005, 90 AH/900cca

I believe you need to register the battery no matter what. BMW's power management module needs to know what kind of battery it is so the ECU can optimize the charge.

I did the same thing on my 2006 550I. Battery went dead - I jump started and drove to the battery store - we hooked up the memory saver to the cig lighter & hooked jumper cables to jump post under hood - very carefully replaced bad battery - that was over a year ago with no problems.
Question; If you had a good battery but left your lights on and it drained. You charge your good battery - would it be necessary to re-register that good battery? If so why?
** Just curious **

The reason why the battery needs to be register is due to the charging system/cycle. On a new battery that has been register the charging will not be of a high load not to burn a cell out as the battery ages the charging load increase as the battery to help with heat and prolong the life.

Yep can confirm the following below is correct. I had the Dealer replace my original battery as car was delivered in late 2005 with a early 2013 battery in identical size 90AH / 900CCA and we did the registration via their scan tool to let the power module to not continue to overcharge the new battery and allow it to slowly increase the charge rate overtime over the battery's life. Cost was AUD$165.00 labour and AUD$600.00 trade price for the battery.

So it looks like my battery had been replaced with an aftermarket one from like autozone. How can I verify if it's been coded to the car? Is there a way to check it on my own? Or does it need to go to a dealership type place?

Hopefully I can verify on my own

I am trying to register the battery on my 2008 750Li but i get error messages when I try either option shown here.

With INPA (using INPA ) I get "group file:D_POW.SYS-0012: Identification error"
With ToolSet32 I get "runtime error '339': Component 'richtxt32.ocx or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

I am able to go in and see car error codes, I can see the A/C settings and see them change in real time, so I'm a bit lost.

Forgive my ignorance, but I wanted to know if there was a special tool needed to register the battery, or if you somehow do it through the dashboard unit. I am receiving a transmission fault error and am hoping the battery will take care of this (as others have indicated it resolved their issues).

Does anyone know if not registering a battery may cause the AC compressor not to work?

Note: I have already completely replaced my compressor, evaporator valve and pressure switch and the symptoms are the same. If I jump the compress from the battery or tell INPA to turn on the compressor it blows cold air, but by itself it doesn't...

Reading this post, I'm wondering if when I replaced the battery last fall if by not registering the battery to the car might this be causing my electrical system to act dumb.

For example, at times I start my car always with the same key and all of my personal settings are gone on my radio and chair. I shut the car off and start it at another time and WA LA it's all back to normal.

Also, I get a message "Rear Light Tag Light" is malfunctioning at times. I have replaced both lamps and they work fine. but at times I still get the message.

Has anyone seen this? Perhaps it's a different amperage battery and the system is preventing the compressor from starting so as not to damage it????

This is what I learned, the hard way, via a trip from hell:

The battery charging, like most other systems on these cars, is computer controlled, hence they are demanding of more information and are very sensitive to proper voltages.

Specifically, two aspect needed for the smart chargers within, are the battery type and the CCA rating. Absorbed glass mat batteries have differing charge rates (profiles) and discharge profiles than traditional lead-acid batteries. Either type can be profiled in the car but some shops report strange problems with non-AGM types.

Our '05 745Li refused to blow on high, except on defrost. The problem was cured with a new AGM battery, despite the 'old' lead/acid being rather new and registered to the car, with mileage when done, stored in the car's computer.

As a protection strategy, the car will "load shed" under given circumstances, two of which are dropping system voltage and rising coolant temperature. What system is shed (shut off) is prioritized; first being (in my case) minor volume changes or pops in the left audio channel, progressing within minutes, to ABS warning, Stability control warning, transmission in protective mode, dash light dimming, then engine shutdown via EFI, etc. I saw all this recur withing a 5 minute timeframe +/-. The car will lock in a high gear in the trans protect mode, perhaps making it impossible to climb small inclines.

Also, the car locks in park with E-brake set, when shutdown, having towing implications. There is a release handle, difficult to find, under the dash, above the driver's left foot (US) accessed thru a keyed cover. Pulling the cord, releases both, allowing the car to roll (ensure it is secured otherwise, if needed). Now is a good time to know exactly where to find it, as not all tow truck drivers are aware. One used a jumper box to start my car; needed to shift from Park.

Given the above, I learned why the battery type and rating is important, similar to why my old-school battery chargers are unsuitable for AGM batteries, outside of jump starting. Some independent shops know the above, many do not. Some prefer BMW brand, perhaps b/c of ignorance, but I have seen good result from non-BMW brands of high quality. The Palm Desert shop that replaced the L/A with AGM did not reregister, probably causing many headaches on my recent road trip.

Sadly, BMW provides us with virtually no information about charging state (voltage) until the computer-generated idiot lights begin. Enroute, I finally rigged up an indicator to read accessory plug voltage via the newly acquired DVM. Instant info was there, telling me (and a good technician) that the system was not charging properly, post-'fix' and after a road test indicated effective repair. That same "rig" was crucial to my knowing the system was not slowly approaching shutdown, and that headlights and other added loads were being borne by the alternator. The plug with two wires cost <$3.50 at a truck stop where I performed a full recharge. Simply working the DVM probes into the plug's leads, then wrapped with electrical tape, proved an invaluable tool. Such devices, professionally made, are available.

I will never take a long trip again without jumper cables, a digital volt-ohm-meter and the plug for cockpit readings.

FWIW, the onset of load shedding is at 12.8vDC while normal running voltage is 14.1 +/-.

I've read your post. Now, where on the car do you register your new battery and where is it found? Do you need some type of equipment to hookup such as a laptop or tool from autozone? I'm new to this stuff and unsure. My battery is running low but I would like to see first if it can be charged because I only drive it 2 times a month on short rides. :cry:

I see everybody is buying aftermarket batteries that worked, where did you buy them from and which one did you get. Are the minimum requirements for the battery 90AH, 900CCA and 190 reserve minutes? And did you use INPA or DIS for the registering.

I purchased mine from Advance Auto Parts. They were the only ones in town (not even Sears, NAPA, Autozone, O'Reilly) who had the "exact specifications" of the original BMW battery that I took out. The dealer was asking $368 with an additional $150 for registering. Go figure that one out!!:mad: Advance had a listed price of $181.99. But, if you go online and pay for it they will give you a code which will deduct $50.00 making it only $149.00. My software package goes with INPA as the first choice for the E65 Series. You'll have to determine for yourself which is the best route for registering. I had a time trying to find the ODB area for registering. When you open the driver's side door, it's right next to the handle which opens the hood. It's got a little plastic cover which when you pull that out carefully, you'll find your module connector for you to connect your computer which will set you going in the right place. Good luck!

I purchased mine from Advance Auto Parts. They were the only ones in town (not even Sears, NAPA, Autozone, O'Reilly) who had the "exact specifications" of the original BMW battery that I took out.

Im going to register it with inpa and see if DIS detects the register date. Im assuming you mean this battery.

with toolset32

first go to file then click F3 then select POW_E65.prg





in the second pic double click the command (steuern_batterietausch_registrieren) just ones and you are done .

remember this is for registering the same size battery not for retrofitting another size , if you want to retrofit 90AGM battery you need to register the battery with DIS because DIS well register only 90AGM battery , if you want to retrofit another battery size you have to use NCS expert .



Im trying to Reg a AGM BATTERY FROM A REGULAR bATT , PLEASE SOMEONE TELL ME OR SHOW ME THE STEPS AND THE PROGRAM IN NEED TO DO THIS THANKS IN ADVANCE 0:~)

I am replacing mine with a different size. Understand i need NCS expert to do this. Have NCS expert. Is there a link showing this already, sort of cookbook style. If so and missed it i apologize, but have searched quite a bit and see links showing the INPA registration. But as far as NCS, they all seem to be like this one, it just says you have to use NCS but has nothing further about actually using NCS. This will be first thing i have done since i got and setup the software, don't want to screw anything up re-inventing the wheel so to speak if there is a step-by-step procedure out there.

Just bought a new BMW from dealer and installed it in my 05 745LI
Do I have to register the battery to clear any fault as I'm having a fault in airbag tension due to low voltage from batter
Or I just try to clear this error

I'm just gonna take it to an independent BMW mechanic.

Ive found a few places using this site:

http://www.bimmershops.com/

I have 2 questions.

Can they register an older battery? The one in my car is a year old.

Also, the battery is a Bosch 49-850b which has 850 CCA.

I wouldnt recommend it. Registering a new battery on these cars is easy.
Get the battery from advanced auto parts. Use an online coupon and save $30.

If the battery thats currently in your car has never been registered then it will soon die out and you will have to replace it anyways.

Get the Rheingold program from. This site and install it. The use the program to register it yourself. Save time and money.

Yah, I may do just that. I had an indy BMW mechanic register my 1-year-old battery. Only charged me $20.

If it doesnt work, I'll go the AGM route.

Thank you for the response.
