I specifically asked the tech who registered my battery and he knew that I was going from lead-acid battery to an AGM battery. There was no complete reprogramming. That is complete garbage. They register the battery and put in the infromation from the battery manufacturer, i.e. total cranking amps, etc. Since my AutoZone H8-AGM battery was exactly the same one they use in that car for BMW brand battery he already knew what settings he needed to code to "register" the battery so proper charging could be done by alternator. Geez.
