This is NOT how you should replace your battery in an RS5. Doing so will render your new battery ruined in a matter of weeks. The car will need to be coded with the new battery simply so that the ECU and ECM can ensure that the output of the alternator is relevant to the battery's condition. The older the battery is (particularly AGM), the more output to it, it will need from the alternator. Keeping the computers memory from resetting will ensure that when you have replaced your dead/old battery with a new one that the output will be relevant to the old battery and not the new one. In short 'coding' the car after a battery replacement ensures that the system 'resets' – knowing that it has a new battery. It then monitors and measures the battery from new.

Does this Audi and other B8 Audis require an OEM battery or can an aftermarket brand battery work?
