SOURCE: bmw 530i which is better choice maintain or take battery off??

Hello. Definitely use a trickle charger to keep your battery charged throughout the winter.
And in no particular order consider the following:
1. Oil and filter change
2. Full fuel tank - actually necessary.
3. Car up on jack stands
4. Car washed and waxed, perhaps covered
5. Intake and exhaust covered with strong mesh screen to prevent rodent infestation (optional, depending on where the car will be stored; mandatory if stored outside)
6. Clean interior and remove anything that could decay (and stink!)
7. install trickle charger to keep car's battery and electronix fully powered
8. Deflate tires to 15 lbs pressure
9. Roll all windows down 1/2 inch to allow for ventilation (optional if storing outside and/or covering car)

Monthly: Start engine and allow to fast idle (1000-2000 rpm) for several minutes. Engage AC to circulate refrigerant oil and keep seals fresh

SOURCE: When changing the battery on

Loosen the battery anchoring. Start the car before disconnecting the battery, Remove Negative first, then the positive. Be very careful and insulate the positive terminal once it is removed so it doesn't come in contact with ground or the negative terminal! Replace the battery, reconnect the terminals (positive first) and then re-anchor the battery to the car. If you follow these instructions, you will not need to re-program your car.

BMW 650 won't start up. Changed the battery with an Interstate battery instead of a factory BMW battery and didn't have the mechanic register it. Do you think that's the issue?

The brand of battery doesn't matter, only that it is rated at the proper cranking amps to it will start the car. Fit of the battery (size and shape of the case) are critical too. Make sure the cables are attached to the proper posts and that they are on snugly.

You don't say whether the engine turns over at all, but if it does, the problem is not the battery.

Hi, how do i register for replace new battery bmw 2007 525i

If you are talking about getting it replaced under warranty, you need to take the car to your dealership and they will have to test it with the factory battery tester. I work at a GM dealership and when we warranty batteries, our tester sometimes needs to charge the batteries for up to 4 hours before it will determine if a battery is good or bad. Just thought you should know that last part in case you were planning on waiting for a quick replacement.

no you wil not have to reprogram if you examine the unit and establish how you are going to change battery quickly.
you have about a minute to change the battery and the unit will retain the info.
if you lose the info you can obtain a sequence code that you can perform yourself.
it is usually a system of key in and out and a number of turns in time within the ignition

How to replace the ignition key in my 2005 bmw 645ci

this can be very difficult to do you must make sure the baterry for the vehicle is disconnected you must remove the casing around the location of the ignition key barrel and there should be a few little pins holding the cylinder in itself with a plug attached be advised though some vehicles with electronic keys may crank over but not run without reprogramming the computer because the car may read the new key set up as someone trying to steal the car just make sure the battery is unhooked this is very important
