'08 328xi Battery drains out?


It is possible that my battery drains out or be at the end of it's life after 109 000 km or 4 years?

Last week, I've take my 328xi for a drive, ant I got the message of battery discharge. I've put it on charge all night long (at this time, the battery was at 30%) at 2 amp/hr, and next morning, everything is ok, 100% charge.

This morning, the discharge message appear again... Do I have to change the battery? and if yes, am I forced to go at the dealership, or you know a place it can be done.

Do a search = battery (here and on the other boards)
a lot of threads will come up.

Also this thread and the searches belong on the main board or maintenance sub boards . Unless you have a huge aftermarket stereo installed.

A good independent can change and register the battery or you can do it yourself and register it with a coding kit, Bav tool or take it to an independent . You just need to match the size and capacity . I used and Interstate mtp94r /h8 for a 90ah battery myself.

See Diy and maintenance sub boards and coding board for procedures.
