How to register BMW new battery by INPA or Ediabas

The battery needs to be registered when you replace it on BMW 7 series (5 series, 6 series etc). Here is the guide to show you how to register new battery withINPA or Ediabas toolset32.

Note: This is just for REGISTERING THE SAME SIZE BATTERY. You are at your risk.

First with BMW INPA software:


With Ediabas toolset32:

first go to file then click F3 then select POW_E65.prg

in the second pic double click the command (steuern_batterietausch_registrieren) just ones and you are done .

remember this is for registering the same size battery not for retrofitting another size , if you want to retrofit 90AGM battery you need to register the battery with DIS/ISTA because DIS/ISTA well register only 90AGM battery , if you want to retrofit another battery size you have to use NCS expert.

FAQ about register BMW battery:
Q: We always used inpa. Should i use both or registering with inpa is enough
A: registering ones is enough , some ppl have problem with INPA registering there battery so i put toolset32 .

Q: what is this battery thing ( registration ) with what? the car computer ?
So if you take out the battery and say get a sears diehard gold . what happens can someone
explain . will another battery work ( doesn't it just see a 12 volt power supply?

A:You need AGM battery. It must be registered. Otherwise it wont charge properly. Our cars are very sensitive. If your battery is low or doesn't get charged properly u will get different errors and faults. Your car need to know how it needs to charge battery thats why u need to register it. You can go to dealer, or u can set up bmw tools and do it yourself.

Q: Where do i get the software and cables to register my battery??
A: BMW ICOM Next or BMW ICOM A2 with ISTA and engineering software INPA, Ediabas, Ncs expert etc. Check hereBMW ICOM NEXT A+B+C with V2017.05 SoftwareISTA-D 4.05.20
ISTA-P etc. You can also download ista torrent on forums and use withINPA K+DCANcable. Better go for INPA. If you are not good using software programmers, you can buyFoxwell NT510 BMWmulti-system scanner that can be directly plugged into the OBD II port. It is located by the drivers door Behind a little flap near the lower hinge area. It is more expensive but can do more things and is specifically programmed for BMW/Mini.

The error above should be with INPA (using INPA ) I get "group file: D_POW.SYS-0012: Identification error" with no space between D and : but the system is making it an emoticon.

A:You might need to Update your Daten files . Better buy newer software package.

How to solve BMW ICOM ISTA Database version error


I just installed theV2017.3 BMW ICOMISTA-D 4.04.12 ISTA-P software HDD on Windows 7 laptop. But failed to install and ISTA software gave error:

"Error in version of database

Existing versions of databases are not compatible with each other. Please contact your

Local assistance. The installation may be incomplete."

And then ISTA-P was ready to shut down
I was told it was because the language incompatibility.

I followed engineer suggestion to change language to English ( or German /Chinese) to check if it is okay.
This time I can open icom software, but nothing display, all blank.

Final solution:

You need to update yourBMW ICOM Next/ICOM A2firmware to newer to work with newer ISTA software.

Review on 2017.5 BMW ICOM ISTA-D 4.05 ISTA-P 3.61

V2017.5 BMW ICOMsoftware has been updated to ISTA-D 4.05.20 ISTA-P And here are ISTA-D 4.05.20 ISTA-P on windows 7 reviews… here you go.

05.2017 Bmw ista review 1:

Great Job !!!
and perfect instruction for install.
I personally went for VM WS installation, because portability is a
very important issue for me.
For those run out of diskspace, like me, I suggest to install Ista+ in VMware WS Ver 12x with Win7 x64 Guest. Earlier VMware versions down to
10 probably will work as well. Diskspace need runs to 350 GB. I used 350 GB diskspace on SSD installed in a caddy sitting in DVD slot of an i3 notebook.
ISTA can be working pretty soon,in case You are following the excellent instructibles of spider80 without missing not a one step of instruction.
X86 apps in VM x64 environment like itoolradar arose a java problem, even when I tried to install an outdated x86 Java version.
Mayor Ista+ / ISTA P working like a charm ( i used icom with latest firmware update ). Running ISTA /P requires good charging
equipment with constant additional load otherwise it will quit session . BMW currentliy advices supply > 70A. For older cars like E-series
25A seem to be ok in my opinion.

05.2017 Bmw ista review 2:
Installed…. 100% working ….so had to log back in and reply with BIG THANKS to the superb package with excellent step by step install instructions.
Just had two little snags when installing under Win7 x86 …..
1) vcredist_x86 2008.exe download was corrupt …..but easily solved by re-downloading fromMicroSh@ft
2) no Java included in download package ….again easily found via Guugle!
Many thanks again Spider80 …’ve done an superb job here, with brilliant step by step instructions
… I just need to find anBMW ICOM Nextinterface at reasonable money for all to fully work on latest B’mers!
