2008 Z4 battery replacement - Do I have to reset computer when this is done?


Asked by Nov 01, 2014 at 12:57 PM about the 2008 BMW Z4 3.0si Roadster RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer


Took my Z4 to my local mechanic I use. He did not have the capability to reset the computer like BMW recommends. Instead of resetting the computer, he made sure the alternator was putting out the correct charge/volts for the new battery. He also made sure the car never lost a charge by hooking up a power pack while he installed the new battery. Worked out fine for me. Saved a few bucks since BMW thinks they are the only ones who can do it.
