    Do I need a new battery can I Charge it

    Update called the AA out as I have parts and labour cover and they said the battery was faulty so they replaced it. Since then the clock has lost the time again and now the passenger seat occupancy sensor is going off is this connected? Does the battery need to be registered he said it didn't. Thanks for the help
  11. Think the battery might be going on my E60 520 lci. Few things I have noticed the battery sign flashes up after a few minutes if engine is off. Clock keeps resetting and Battery increase discharge yesterday appeared. Should I try and charge the battery first? If not where is the best place to get a replacement? Thank you.
