Want to change from FLA to AGM battery

I have a 2009 E60 with a dying FLA battery. I would like to upgrade to an AGM battery and I need to know the steps to program it properly.

I found a helpful thread with a PDF on this subject posted by member cn555ic, but it shows just changing the ah setting in the CAS module for the battery type using NCS and then registering the new battery using tools32. I have these programs and have coded features using NCS before.

Is it that simple?

I thought I read you needed to remove and add codes from the VO to add the AGM option, or something like that. Is the above PDF assuming that the option is already listed?

Please direct me to the correct link for what I would like to do....or is the PDF I found only what I need?

Thanks!

I ended up purchasing a Bosch Premium AGM battery from Pep Boys (item #49-850BAGM). If you purchase it online, you can get 25% off the $219.99 retail so it was $164.99. It is a perfect fit.

I edited the FA for both CAS and LMA by deleting the -B110 VO code that was there for my old 110ah FLA battery and adding the -A090 code for the new 92ah AGM battery and saved it by using function FA_WRITE. I then coded the CAS module using 90ah_agm for the battery type. I then registered the battery using tools32. DID I MISS ANYTHING?

I appreciate the above link Almaretto, but the info there was not applicable to an E60. I wanted to use INPA to register the battery, but I could not find the correct module that would advance me to the "register battery replacement" command. The PDF from cn555ic showed the proper method using tools32.

So, a couple of questions:

When I originally read the FA, the B110 code was listed as "-B110". I tried to enter just "A090", but when I re-read the FA, it was not listed after I did FA_WRITE. Since the originally battery code was prefixed with "-", I entered "-A090", it saved it as "-A090" Is this the proper way to enter the code?

I would like to use INPA to register the battery. Is there a link with instructions specific to the E60?

Thank you! That is exactly what I needed.

I searched and searched. I couldn't find that thread using the keywords "E60 battery registration" because there was no space in "coding/registration".

Thank you!

I was able to confirm my battery registration using INPA. All the settings took.

Thank you!
