Hi all -

So I decided on a NAPA 9828 AGM battery as a replacement for my 2002 Spyder. The fella at NAPA specifically pointed out the following note on their product description:

  • Important Information: Best Performance Estimate; Vehicle Computer System Must be Reset. Contact your Service Specialists; Flat Plate AGM
Now I have had experience with other vehicles like BMW that do require a vehicle computer reset to "accept" the new battery (I've been told without the reset the new battery can get overcharged). Does the same concept apply to a 2002 Spyder? Has anyone had to reset the computer system when replacing a battery? I thought this was going to be a simple remove and install. Thanks in advance!

Jason,

Any thoughts on a good battery trickler for an AGM battery? I'll have to what is currently installed on top of my non-AGM battery. Now that I have purchased a NAPA 9848 AGM I'm thinking I may need to purchase a different trickler. I've read plenty of favorable posts on the net about a Ctek 4.3 maintainer.

Thanks!



No, it is just straight R&R....Jason

We put a Schumacher P1297 in a Ferrari last month and it was pretty nice for a cheap trickle charger....J

Maybe they meant to say your computer WILL be reset, because that happens if you remove the battery. Hope you don't have to get a smog check very soon, because the systems won't be ready until you drive it around for a while.
