Says it was not possible to identify the car.
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 with INPA 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 here BMW ICOM NEXT A+B+C with V2017.05 Software ISTA-D 4.05.20
ISTA-P 3.61.4.002 etc. You can also download ista torrent on forums and use with INPA K+DCAN cable. Better go for INPA. If you are not good using software programmers, you can buy Foxwell NT510 BMW multi-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.
Instructions for installation, configuration and solution of possible errors, is located in the Tools folder (FAQ-RU.pdf and FAQ-EN.pdf).
ISTA-P – 112 GB
Service Data (SDP) – 70 GB

Ps. Same software is working fine with my F3x -serie car (with K+DCAN and/or ENET cable).

4 --> 4 and 5

I have installed EDIABAS and tried to change com ports (in obd.ini) according to laptop’s usb port com etc. I have changed in laptop’s device manager latency of port to 1. Feeding additional electricity to battery with separate charger, tried engine running but not working.
When I try to read vechile info via Rheingold, K+DCAN cable’s little light flashes once briefly and then stops and gets the error in software.
I can now connect to all of my bike’s ecus and read live data, reset service indicator after service etc. Although I cannot make for example ABS unit’s bleeding (in case of I would like to change all break lines and some other this kind of jobs).
I removed all old stuff and re-installed software. I also downgraded USB serial driver version. I found via Google that there might be problem with Chinese cables which not necessarily have genuine FTDI chip. The newest driver versions won’t necessarily work with fake FTDI chips.
I cleaned com ports via Windows regedit and configured there serial port RxFIFO and TxFIFO values and put force_fifo_enable on. If I remember it correctly it was off at some point in my trials.
I also made own cable between bike’s 10-round pin adapter and k+dcan cable. Or actually it’s not real cable, just set of separate wires which I connect from motorcycle’s round adapter pins straight to K+DCAN cable’s pins. I haven’t tried to connect to motorcycle with icom-d cable since then so I don’t know whether it would work nowadays after other changes I made.
I was lazy and made many changes at the same time so root cause for my earlier problems is not totally clear.
I am not sure whether I should have BMW ICOM A2 entity in order to get rest of Rheingold functionalities to work. But at the moment I am happy with those functionalities I have now available.
