BMW battery replacement sounds like an easy job you could do on your own. In reality, replacing car batteries requires far more knowledge than you would imagine. Almost all newer BMW models come with Start&Stop systems amongst other things. This means car batteries had to adapt and become more than just plain power storage. However, they still remain one of your cars' vital components. Having a healthy battery that provides power for all your electronic devices should be a priority.
Learn how to recognize the signs of a failing battery in your BMW. At the end of the article we also pointed out the easiest and most convenient way to get a BMW battery replacement in Dubai, BMW battery replacement in Abu Dhabi or a BMW battery replacement in Sharjah.

Does your BMW need a new battery?

Here are a few common signs your BMW needs a battery replacement or maintenance.

  • Old battery

    If your battery is more than 5 years old we recommend a check-up to determine the condition of your BMWs battery.
  • Dashboard warning light

    This is the most common sign of a failing battery. If you start seeing your dashboard battery warning light turn on, do not ignore it. Even though your car still runs smoothly, the warning light is a clear indication of potential trouble.
  • Slow start

    Your car does not start up as smoothly and quickly as it once did. This is a clear sign of a weak battery that is not capable of providing the right amount of power needed for a smooth start.
  • Failing electronic devices

    Your battery could still be good enough to crank the engine. But It might start failing when it comes to providing the power for your navigation system or other electronics.
  • Other signs

    Upon inspection of the battery itself, you might see the battery case bulging or even leaking. There could also be clear signs of corrosion on the battery terminals. The last but not the least common thing is a weird smell coming from your battery. This is a sign of chemical leakage which can cause damage to other components of your car as well.

Why is choosing the correct BMW car battery crucial?

As mentioned before, car batteries are not as simple today as they used to be. There are many factors that need to be taken into account when choosing the right battery. A professional will know how to choose the exact battery that is needed to provide power for all your electronics inside the car and under the hood. The battery must be the correct size, it must comply with systems like Start&Stop, the terminals have to be in the correct position, and so on. The most common factors are the power requirement needed to crank your engine and the ampere-hour capacity. With modern vehicles, buying a battery based upon just these two factors is not enough. Many other factors come into account to ensure your BMW keeps running as it should.

Why you need a professional for your BMW battery replacement?

A specific of BMW is that they don't only use a simple negative and positive contact on their battery terminals. They use a common negative contact and an advanced power distribution box positive contact. The power distribution box safely distributes the power from your BMWs battery to all the electronics in the circuit. Having a professional replace your battery ensures the power distribution box is disconnected and connected properly. Damaging the power distribution box can cause unwanted repair costs.

Once your new BMW battery is fitted, it needs to be programmed and registered into your vehicle. This can only be done with professional tools. Not programming and registering your new battery can result in overcharging or even malfunctioning which can cause great damage to your electronics.
