You can try closest and see if it works for you.
I used the 0E for a Costco 730 CCA battery on a 2015 Lincoln MKC and it was the right one for me.

Hello,

I just replaced a battery on a ford focus 1.5tdci with one VARTA E39 AGM 70Ah 760CCA

I have this options on FORSCAN but looking at the previous post I have some doubts if its the correct choose

Is there any other place to change battery type?

Your are probably right. According to this original sheet posted a few years ago, you should set it to 01. In addition to using the AGM setting the vehicle looks for the CCA rating.


https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EJnizs ... o6nS3/view

After installing battery you should do a battery reset to start the monitoring fresh.

Battery Monitoring System Reset
1. Connect USB or Bluetooth adapter to the vehicle and laptop
2. Start FORScan
3. Turn key on
4. Connect FORScan to vehicle
5. After FORSCan finds all modules, click the Wrench Icon
6. Click "BdyCM Battery Monitoring System Reset"
7. Click Play button at the bottom left – red arrow
8. Follow the on screen prompts
9. When finished click Stop button – green arrow
10. Check/clear any DTCs
11. Disconnect FORScan from vehicle

Hello
thank you for your reply

Done everything you said, the stop/start works perfectly, so it must be correct the calibration

regarding the codes, i went checking other parts and found this:

So its correct? 01?

It must be a forscan bug, because I only replaced battery type on central configuration! Then I see your post and went checking were to find 726-04-01-xx

And see that was already modified to 01 like you said!

So there is no need to any more modifications?

Caution!

Battery age in days can't be changed back
!

if you change the battery type of old battery, the battery life time goes automatically 0 day
so BCM---BMS understands that the new battery and generator charging have changed min amps.


Then there is also a Battery reset in BCM (not Asbuilt). You can check these out and decide if it was done automatically or if you have to reset it yourself. With the initial battery problems I had, I shut my BMS off some time ago.
