... but since I haven't yet ordered the cable/battery its very hard to follow along. I'm picking up a DCAN/OBDII cable to put a new battery in my 2008 335i, and want to make sure I can use it and the software that's out there to both program and register the battery.
I was going to get this battery: http://www.walmart.com/ip/EverStart-...ttery/16782659
... however it has different specs than the OEM battery (760 Cold Cranking Amps). The thread above (post 2) states the process is only for OEM batteries. What would I do differently? Is there a "how-to" for non OEM battery replacement?
You have to code the closest amps in klasse_batterie under the CAS module. After that open up tool32 I believe and follow the new battery registration like normal. There is a guide around here somewhere
