So it could be that it needs a new EOS test because I put an incorrect code in or that the safety box in the battery needs replacing?

If BMW had the vin of my i3 and put that into the EOS, ran a test on another battery in the workshop using my vin, would that generate the right code?
Unless you can clear that transport mode fault, It looks like it needs an EOS test. It won't do any good to give them your VIN number, as all it does is store the code in the SME and then gives it to you to put in ISTA. VIN irrelevant.

There is a small chance that running the delete transport mode test plan will clear this out. Another small chance that INPA will have an application/tool to help clear this fault out, not sure though as again I have not tried.
