Do you need to reset car computer after replacing the battery?
Car battery reset / registration / validation service offered at Coventry. If you have an AGM or EFB or AFB battery fitted to your vehicle (most modern vehicles from 2014 onwards are fitted with this type of battery) you must only replace these types of batteries with an exact equivalent technology type with same capacity and rating, if you fit a standard flooded battery your start stop system may not function correctly causing the battery to fail prematurely.
The use of Battery Management Systems (BMS) is common on most modern vehicles. These systems monitor the battery throughout its life to maintain optimum charge efficiency and operation of the Start-Stop system.
On vehicles fitted with a Battery Management System BMS it is essential to reprogram the system via the on-board diagnostics (EOBD) port to validate that a new battery has been fitted.
- System faults and in-vehicle error messages
- Loss of the Start-Stop functionality
- Possible loss of non-critical vehicle system functions
