BMW Battery Registration with Rheingold ISTA, Foxwell, Autel MaxiSys

You know, some vehicles today need to have their 12v staring batteries charge rate controlled by something called a battery control module, because as the battery ages it needs to be charged more aggressively than a new battery, so when you’re changing a battery on a vehicle like this, we have to update the information in the battery control module and that’s usually called battery registration, in that way the battery control module won’t cause the alternator to overcharge or aggressively charge a new battery which would ruin that battery and possibly some components in the vehicle’s electrical system as well, so let’s take a look at how we can register a new battery with our scan tool connected to the vehicle’s OBD2 diagnostic connector. The tested BMW scan tools are Rheingold ISTA, Autel MaxiSys, Foxwell NT510 Elite, foxwell nt530.
