Thanks for the info. I think SleeplessEyes mentioned BMW IBS.
Then, you mentioned programming new battery and stuff, so I found this: Bimmertips.

This is so cool, yet painful if ever kena flat battery.

Great article. If that day should come that all car manufacturers are required to install IBS in their vehicles I will stop buying a new vehicle then.

Current systems in other car manufacturers is good enough. All that is required is to run the battery conductance and the appropriate electrical charging system tests. Thats all.

Some cars I believe already have this early warning system wherein the battery icon will light up showing a weakening battery. Now that is very good system IMO for all car manufacturers to install. I think its available in the Teana if I am not mistaken.

supposedly when you change new battery, you're supposed to "register" it with the ecu, tell it what type n capacity...  and ecu will track charging cycles as well as adjust charging as the battery ages

that's what I read here n there... I haven't seen how it's done yet so don't believe everything I say... biggrin.gif

If I am not mistaken there's a forummer by the name of ffrozz or froz or ffroz, who uses Q85 battery in his Mazda and that battery lasted 5 years.

I doubt that it is the ONLY function of the battery.

It is! You can give it a try. Start your car, remove your battery. And you should be able to drive around with no issue.

No thank you. A battery also functions as a voltage regulator.

Minimum DIN66 but some would go for DIN75, its dependant on the manufacturer's recommendation in order to meet its respective requirements for warranty.

Most importantly is to have the vehicle electrical charging system check out and assessed properly.

All of us have our individual favourite brands and as long the charging system checks out, a good battery should lasts under normal operating circumstances.
