Carly Battery registration, sos assist not working

Recommended Posts

Hi, trouble with my trip computer and time/date data being lost occasionally when I start my 2008 520 lci diesel that I've owned 3 weeks. I have purchased a 110Ah battery and intend to replace the current 80Ah (don't think this is a standard capacity) battery. I will register the battery and change the capacity with Carly. I also have a fault that bongs every time i start the car stating that 'SOS assistance is unavailable'. After some internet trawling it seems that the 2G technology that the system uses was turned off 2 years ago (correct me if any of this is wrong). Would I be able to use Carly to inhibit this alert? Thanks

You will need to code the 110Ah battery using Carly to replace the 80Ah battery as it will have a very different charging characteristics to your existing 80Ah battery 

 

The 520d didn't come with as big a battery as 110Ah as standard.

Carly will not code out your SOS Assist, you'll need a laptop and cable with BMW software. 

Mmm thanks, I thought Carly may not help. Do you know where I can get hold of what is needed?
