This is a 2015 BMW 528i, and I’ve changed a new battery aftermarket. So I wanna try if this Autel MaxiIM IM608 scan tool can do BMW battery replacement & registration.
Plug Autel IM608 connector into OBD, go access

3 kinds of battery capacity, just select from your case.

After registration, the last battery exchange and the last but one battery exchange are set to 0 km or can be displayed correctly only after going to the history of the last battery exchange again.
Follow the prompts, continuous press “Continue”.
