I’m trying to resolve numerous spurious error codes that appear and disappear by replacing the battery which is now 4 years old
I’d rather pay £180 for a new AGM battery than waste money on NOx sensors and Quantity Control Valves that were not unserviceable
OEM reference A0019828208 it’s a Varta
Varta 595901085 seems to be the nearest equivalent
My question is can I replace a like for like AGM battery without having to “ recode” it?
I’m seeing conflicting information

Yes, if you replace like for like it doesn’t need to be recoded 👍🏻👍🏻

Thanks Ted, that’s reassuring, I’m sure I read somewhere that it had to be recoded but now can’t find that reference in my handbook
Another question relating to battery replacement
On many YouTube videos showing battery replacement on Sprinters the US models ( LHD) have a battery isolator located near the “gas pedal” (accelerator) which can be unplugged to avoid battery drain if the vehicle is laid up, it also helps to avoid shorts when working on battery electrics
Do UK models have this isolator?, or is it specific to only US models?
I can’t find it on my RHD model or any reference to it in the handbook
