    Alarm may be triggered when reattaching batery cable.

    Remove will not open doors or trunk when battery is disconnected.

    Navigation system must reboot when battery is reconnected.

    Seat, steering wheel, and mirror positions as well as radio station presets will need to be restored.

    Time and date will have to be reset.



    Note that if you can open the door manually and also open the hood manually, then you can lock up the car while stored. If there is no way to open the trunk manually to reconnect the battery, you can jump the car using the jump lugs in the engine compartment to enable the remote truck opener.

    Sorry, I went to bed and another expert took over to answer your questions.



    All I meant by the steering wheel part was that if you have an electrically telescoping steering wheel, the car will forget your preferred adjustment setting.

    I see no problem with using a trickle charge, but I would check to make sure the voltage from the charger was less that 15 volts. I trickle charge should be no more than 14.5 volts. You might also consider putting the charger on a timer so that it only runs for a minimal time each day, as any more would be unnecessary.

Hi.

The steering wheel settings should be unaffected and will be kept even after few months with battery not connected. The control modules have an internal memory that keeps settings for months even when you disconnect the battery. You will need to set the clock and you may be asked for stereo code. Things with your 650i will be pretty much the same as the scenario described by owners in this forum on 528i.

Regards.

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.

2007 BMW 328i trunk will not open


If trunk won't open on 328, open the pass through on rear seat, then use a walking cane or something else that hat a hook on end to reach the emergency release lever located on the inside bottom of trunk lid. I disconnect my battery for five months, and this is how I gain access to the battery. Also, check fuse box in glove box to see if the trunk activator fuse is blown.

How do you recharge battery in 06 650 bmw


battery is located in trunk under the bottom cover if car is completly dead you will need the key and press the trunk emblem in on the top it will tilt forward then the key can be inserted from the bottom to manually open trunk then pull up trunk floor covers and attach jumper cables or charger to battery.
note; factory batterys work the best but when they go bad they dont give you a lot of warning also if vehicle is going to sit for like a week at time or more you should by a battery maintaner there cheap between 20-30 dollars like at lowes or home depot or walmart or from the dealer like 90.00 the other ones do the samething just dont say BMW

Where can i find the battery in my bmw 5255i


battery is located under the rear seat. grab the corner and lift up. Factory battery is expensive. Interstate is a good battery. You want to be sure that the battery will fit correctly. A lot of batteries say they are a direct replacement, but you need to use spacers and adapters. when you disconnect battery, disconnect negative terminal 1st and be sure not to touch negative and positve together as you'll get a shower of sparks and could cause the battery to explode. make sure you have the radio code. You'll need to enter the radio code for the radio to work as well as set time/date

Going on long trip for 3months, should I disconnect the battery on my 2004 545i?


Hi Cypher,

Good question, the answer is yes and no.

If you disconnect the battery, you can lose diagnostic codes, your radio may think it's stolen and lock itself, your clock will stop, etc.

If you leave it connected for three months, these items will drain the battery.

These items need very little power to run, but they do need power.

Leaving even a low amperage trickle charger on for three months isn't a great idea, that will kill the bat too.

You can set a charger up to a timer. Program it for 2 hours a night at 2 amps. That will keep it ready to go upon your return.

Best regards
Mike

I had the transmission fluid checked. It was ok- Apparently a malfunction in the electrical system. The battery has been recharged and I drove it yesterday. It seems to be ok. I plan to replace the battery soon, since it has not been replaced since I purchased the car in 2004. I drive it so infrquently I think the battery simply died. It has been driven approximately 25 miles since December 2008. I plan to drive it on the highway this summer.
