Also reset IBS with INPA.
Why S536A Auxiliary heating?

Why not change the battery type in the CAS and then register the battery with INPA?

For those that have a working version of INPA the battery registration on E60 can be accomplished by following these steps:

From Main Menu GO TO: E60 > Engine > MSD 80.0 > Status Analog/Digital (F5) > IBS - Powermanagement (F5) > Batterietaush registrierne (F5)(battery registration in German).

That would seem to be a whole lot easier than using Toolset32, etc.

My mistake

I looked at the line you pasted.

Code:
E A090                  BATT_AGM_90AH                   //90 Ah-AGM Batterie (SA536)
I know: Always double check before you answer...
Won't happening again.

There's a right way and a wrong way to code.
If battery replacement is done with SSS, then FA values are ??adjusted and not just the content of modul.

If you use NCS Expert to code the module and then use INPA to register the battery then what hasn't been done right?

If you changed the FA for the battery, then there is no problem. INPA doesn't register battery, only resets IBS.

There is a INPA function to register battery, I will post the INPA screen when I am home.

From memory....

Select the right module for your vehicle engine, MSD80 MVS70, etc.

Select F5 status in analog / digital

Select F5 again IBS Power Management

Select F5 register battery replacement

Possibly even F6 to reset the charge histograms

I know how IBS reset in INPA works, no need to upload pics.

With the battery replacement you're asumed to put back in the same type of battery, and reseting IBS only cleares the charge and discharge cyclus.
When a other type of battery (from 90 AmpH to a 110 AmpH) it will not get fully charged, because the IBS is set to only charge with 90 AmpH.
And thats why people are having "High battery drain" faults, even if a new battery is in place.

So AGM is a better battery.

Is the 90AH AGM a better battery than the 110AH non AGM battery? 110>90 but AGM >non-AGM?

The only difference is that AGM batterys are maintenance free because they are fild with gel.
I would not go to 90 Amp when the car came standard with 110 Amp battery.
