If the battery on a 2005/5 x5 is removed or go's flat could it change the mileage / speedo reading.
Shouldn't change the odometer or the speedometer, but it will clear out your memory such as the MPG and trip odometer and maybe the radio presets.
Tom is correct, battery removal won't affect the odometer.
That would be a dream come true for most used car salesman
Tom, yes it would!
