That should be an issue if the battery is new. Charging a dead battery is the only time I would be concerned.

No the battery is new and I just installed it into my 328I, I thought it wouldn't hurt to top off the charge as this car uses so much electrical juice in day to day driving and I drive short distances.???

If that's the case I would connect a charger. Small current charge. 2A to 12A at most.

You can charge it in car. Just use the terminals under the hood that you use for jump starting.

Have you figured out the problem yet? If not, maybe you want to read the check engine codes and post them here.

I know it has been a while, but were you able to find a solution to this?

You shouldn't have to worry about this issue if your alternator and battery are in good health.
