Question Battery Question

Need to replace the battery on my 335i. I intend on getting it registered at my Indy. Can I get away with installing it without registration for the 5 minute drive to my Indy or should I just lug it along in the morning (getting cyl 6 injector replaced)? Battery is really on last legs not holding a charge. I have it on the trickle as I type.

Whatever you do, please, travel with a backup!!!!!!!!



This fine unit, for instance, will provide vehicle power in the event that your battery fails. And fail it may if not registered - improper chanrging has killed many a good unit!

Your co-pilot should operate the crank on every drive, until your battery is registered. Be certain to crank at 50-60 hz, no more and no less, through a rectifier to your changing terminals under the hood. 12 gauge wire recommended.

You will have peace of mind and, should your battery go dead, you can re-charge in even to most desolate locale!

Best o'luck BimmerBoy1986 - DO post a Youtube showing operation of the above on an actual trip!

You forgot to mention the frabulator gasket that insulates the crank device from the vehicle.
