Battery registration

Came home from a week long vacation today to a dead battery . I'd like to replace it myself, but I don't have the tool required to register the new battery to my car.

A few questions:
1) Will I be able to drive the car after replacing the battery without registering it? (I'm assuming it just throws a code/light on the dash)

2) Does anyone have the tool required to register a new battery, and if so, would you be willing to help me register the replacement battery?

Thanks in advance

I think you can drive it but it will not charge the right way untill you get it coded to the car.

Fantastic...
Does anyone around NoVA have one of these tools?
