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 .

Dead,
Not sure what software package you used but can't seem to get mine to open up to viewing what you've presented. When you apply these results, do you need to have your disks inside your computer and be online?

Good to know that you can also do that with ToolSet32. Thanks for sharing!
FYI: I cannot see the first 5 pictures. Maybe it's just me.

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?

Who has used a non OEM BMW Battery @ $300? I buy all my batteries from auto zone (warranty = 8 years). I am looking at replacing my 03 745i battery with a Duralast (for my specific year & model = same size!) auto zone battery! I am having my local dealership register it!

How did this work out for you? I'm looking to do the same thing. Do I NEED to have the exact battery that the dealer is suggesting??

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

registering battery

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.

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 **
