    Battery problem - advice needed

    Hi, friends!

    I want to ask, whether 997 Carrera has the so called "battery management"? Our 2004 Carrera S had a dead battery some time ago, which was replaced with new one.

    But now "check engine" was activated and I want to ask, whether there is a specific procedure, when replacing the battery?

    Thanks in advance!

    My battery 'died' a few years ago.  I had it replaced, by the OPC, with a higher capacity version - 80AH.

    No problems since...

    Re: Battery problem - advice needed

     There is a specific procedure when replacing the battery that, according to the manual, sounds like it needs special equipment to reprogram everything. But you say it was replaces some time ago, so if it wasn't reprogrammed right, you would have known immediately.

    What makes you think the check engine light is caused by the battery?

    Just had my battery go dead last week, for no apparent reason. Dealer said it was fine but suggested I buy a plug in charger and really charge it up to the max.

    Carrageous:

    Do you have more specific info, regarding this exact procedure?


    Re: Battery problem - advice needed

     Not with me, but it's in the manual. Take a look ... they claim it should only be removed and replaced by the dealer or a certified Porsche technician, because of the equipment needed to reprogram everything. Apparently, it can affect everything from suspension to engine maintenance to braking.

    But again, if your car was running fine after the battery change, it sounds like all that was done correctly.

    Again, what makes you think the CEL is a battery problem? When my battery got weak last week, there was no CEL. It just wouldn't start (as I was trying to get to the airport!)
