i myself have installed two batteries from auto zone in my car , never had them registered. never had any problems. alls i did is put in the battery with the same characteristics as the original, the only thing ihad to do is reset the clock and date. actually the battery i installed is actually for a mercedes.cause it had more cranking amps . and it fit inthe compartment better. was closer to the original battery size. Some aftermarket batteries are smaller than the original, i really dont think registering the battery is necessary, only cause i havent had any issues. can someone explain why registering the battery is nessesary,
