Please see the following procedure that should be carried out after fitting your new battery
  • 1 – Make sure all electrical items (the A/C, the audio, the lights, etc.) are off.
  • 2 – Turn the vehicle to the OFF (LOCK) mode.
  • 3 – Turn the vehicle to the ACC mode.
  • 4 – Turn the vehicle to the ON mode.
  • 5 – Start the engine, and let it idle for 1 minute or more.
  • 6 – Turn the vehicle to the OFF (LOCK) mode.
  • 7 – Repeat steps 2 through 6 four times or more.
  • NOTE: The internal resistance of a 12 volt battery may not be updated if the engine starts up immediately from the OFF (LOCK) mode without going through the ACCESSORY mode and ON mode.
  • 8 – Turn the vehicle to the ON mode.
Saw this on Cox's site when looking at batteries. I was wondering if this procedure should/must be followed when replacing the battery after charging.

Thank you for any help on this matter.
