Replacing battery - OK to wait one week to register it?
 
New to the forum.
Never had issues with car - never needed help - till now :D

Putting a new battery in
Ordering a Bavarian Technic Enthusiast kit

Probably won't hurt the battery to run it a few days till BT gets here and I can register battery . . . . . . .will it?

Thx . . . .:wave:

May be no problem at all. Have you verified that its charging specs are same as stock?

On another note, there is a new entertainment sensation called Gambling! Delivering thrills 'n' chills, you never know when you'll win and when you'll lose!

You sound like a guy ready for that. If you wish, Atlantic City and Las Vegas are popular destinations. Bring your credit card.

I waited over four weeks (DCAN cable was slow to arrive). During that time the car took about a week to realize it had a new battery - until then we had the same issues as with the old battery (low battery light, rough running on start-up).

With hindsight I should have used the car with the reconditioned battery (via CTEK 7002) for at least two weeks. I think that would worked in the end, saving buying a new battery + registering. Recently the six year old battery in my lawn tractor died - it's working fine since being reconditioned with the CTEK :thumbup:

Hey Tennessee did you get the Bavarian scanner yet? How do you like it? I just bought one but haven't gotten it yet.
