Re: reset computer best way ??

I was told 5-10 mins. Not too sure about a fuse, I think the computer has an alternate wire feed to prevent loss of data. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

How do you like the POWERAID?? How about the install??

Overall comments?

Disconnect the battery and turn the headlights on. Wait about 15 minutes. Turn the headlights off and reconnect the battery.

Re: reset computer best way ??

Poweraid spacer install easy 30 min..It has a whining noise when you open up the throttle, sounds ok throttle response MUCH better feels like it added a power band or brought it out more!! I installed the K&N FIPK at the same time so between them I am happy !
Next is headers and the exhaust then hypertec
I saw a spacer on e-bay 40$ cant beat it

Re: reset computer best way ??

NoMo,

Just disconnecting the battery won't do the trick? I am curious what turning the lights on after the battery is disconnected does.

Thanks,

Re: reset computer best way ??

Residual voltage (due to circuit capacitance) tends to be sufficient to keep the PCM "powered" for quite a while. Turning on the headlights helps to drain this residual voltage pretty quickly.

At least that's the best theory I've got. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: reset computer best way ??

Remove both cables from the battery and touch them together, wait 30 minutes before re-installing the cables to the battery, this resets the computer,

Re: reset computer best way ??

I reset mine by just disconnecting the battery for about 15 min. I had a trouble code show up when I forgot to hook up the wire from the filter - throttle body duct when putting on the headers. [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img] The short disconnect cleared the code and computer.
