unplug it, or the battery for 1/2 and hour. I don't think it is actually required. I just got pacies done today. Car immediately felt much better.

I just ordered a set of JMM extractors and asked Jim this very question . He said the people who recommend the reset of the computer must like the sound of their own voice , in other words they are talking crap .

i was wondering the same thing,,new here but been involved with cars for a while,,this adaptive stratigy,does the battery really need to be disconnected or not,,i thought the ecu would relearn regardless,,i stand to be corrected though.
