I get the same message on my 1995 515ia. Can anyone give me some feedback as to which batteries I might use and cost. Should I replace the battery with an OEM or is an aftermarket fine. The car is 5 yrs old and has never had the battery replaced.

: The check control message followed with the see owner's manual message comes on when I insert the key into the start position and goes away after cranking the engine over. The messages appear again, after shutting the car off. The car runs perfectly fine!

: Does anyone know if this is normal or if I should be alarmed. I check the archives, but haven't found any valuable information pertaining to my model and year.
