Is this an AGM battery?

Can't see those magic three letters, certainly not on the top. As I understand it a June 11 built D4 should be AGM. AGM or not?

PS This is what the car thinks is fitted. Looked at the options under battery type & couldn't see any AGM option. Confused

Other threads suggest that the 585 104 RA is a 90A with 950 CCA but there is some confusion.

I'm also getting confused. My IID doesn't show an AGM option, plus yet have to work out how to reset the BMS after charging it up through the towing leckies. And which setting for the CCF.

Looking at this AGM battery https://www.tayna.co.uk/EK950-Exide-Start-...P9443.html but it's only 850CCA as opposed to 950CCA on the car. Unlike for the D3, there doesn't seem to be a "favourite" D4 AGN battery.

Yep, looks like mine is a non AGM type. Seen a good number of comments extolling the virtue if AGM vs standard so will be going that way. Just got to make sure I can reset the CCF to AGM and the correct battery type. Not powering up the car so can't play with the settings, it's on charge and will stay on charge overnight now. Sad

My MY10 D4 didn't come with an AGM battery. I was under the impression that 2010 was the changeover year to AGM as standard fit. So if that's the original battery, it's probably one of the last batch fitted.

It was June 11 manf according to the plate in the engine bay, shortly before the change to new fangled MY12/8 spd malarkie. Will figure out how to reset the BMS and set it to AGM, if not looks like our old favourite might be purchased. https://www.tayna.co.uk/EA1000-Exide-Premi...P7488.html Thumbs Up

You can do it all with the IID.

I can send you the link to the AGM battery If you want?

This is the battery that was recommended to me back in the summer by the forum guru for a D4/RRS.



I've been running this battery now for a good few months and I have had no problems. I also completed the recommended BMS reset when I installed it.

Ok, couldn't wait for any codes so got the price of a posh coffee off with FACEBOOK45 code. Exide AGM on its way.

Leads to the question, what changes do I make with the IID to the CCF to facilitate changing to an AGM battery?

Got these options under battery type. The new one is 95Ah & 850 CCA though.

Presently the green 950CCA battery.

Is this the routine for resetting the BMS: Battery Replacement?

And where do I go to tell the car it now has an AGM battery fitted? Is that through the H & T in the battery selection?

It is the H8HD as displayed in your screenshot and don't forget the battery reset (which is in the IID service menu) once the new one is fitted. To speed-up the battery learning process it is best to fully charge the battery before fitting.

Is that the "Battery Replacement" option in the Service/Test menu, as in the 3rd screenshot above the battery reset? Question

Will get it fully charged before fitting. Thumbs Up
