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
