New Battery not coded for 2 years. Should I code it now?

2008 135i
Indy replaced the battery about 2 years ago.
I wasn't sure if he coded it or not, but today, I checked it using Carly and looks like it's never been recoded. and I haven't seen any issues so far.

It's been 2 years now. Should I recode it now? or just leave it as it is?


Thanks in advance.

Can only help longevity of you code it. So go ahead. Never hurts to do things correctly.

Not sure I agree with this actually, the battery is 2 years old, so it's not "new" anymore. The computer doesn't have an option for installing anything other than a brand new battery and it will treat a newly coded battery as such, this might prematurely wear out an already 2-year old battery. I'm not 100% on this, maybe someone with in-depth knowledge of the adaptive parameters for the battery draw/load can chime in.

How about coding it to a lesser amp-hour than the original rating?

I vote no Edward. I switched to lightweight batteries. I had my first coded, haven't bothered since, they all lasted the same amount of time (2yrs ish).

Thanks all.
I'll just keep it as it is and do it properly for the next battery.
