Default New Battery - 3rd April 2018, 08:49 PM


I might need a new Battery. My original battery is sluggish. Iíve heard people say that it might have be registered to the car. How does the car know if a new battery has been fitted? My Battery just has standard connections BTW. Thanks in advance.

Only if your battery has a L shaped plastic connection on your negative terminal (purple arrow in the diagram below - thatís the Intelligent Battery Sensor (IBS)) then you have to code it. If you are only seeing a standard connection that could be good news with no coding necessary.
