Battery Swap

Battery Swap was created by skinnymik
Forgive me if this sounds like a really stupid ask - but I intend to carry out a simple 12v battery swap, before I do is there anything I will need to do once the power is back on ie, will I lose TPMS, Key Fob Immobiliser settings etc etc?

Only swapping as we do short journeys and the car appears to start better when it's been on an overnight 'trickle charge'.

Presets on the stereo will be lost, otherwise it is good.
Sometimes the ecu can be reset if the power is out more than half an hour but no problems with that either.

Cool, I'll get on with ordering a suitable battery then, Don't envisage the swap taking any longer than about 15 mins if all lines up OK.
