Battery warning

Recommended Posts

I have been getting these messages on an interim basis. About every 3-4 weeks. I have replaced the battery about 1 year ago. The car starts easily every time. Has anyone else seen these messages? Does the car have an auxiliary battery?

Welcome to the Forum

What is your normal journey pattern ? Lot's of short stop start journeys don't help modern cars it takes at least 15 to 20 minutes of driving at a reasonable speed to recharge the battery following a start cycle. Add to that our modern BMW's are very power hungry beasts with so many functions running often in the background.

If your journey cycle is short and stop start then I would try and add at least once a week a 20 to 30min dual carriageway or Motorway journey once a week. An alternative would be to set up and intelligent charger (Ctek) or similar) and connect it over night every week or two
