Ok i know that you need to disconnect the battery for about 30mins to reset the ecu, but when i connect it back up do i have to run the car through a procedure at all?

like turn lights on off and turn the wheel?

cheers

i think the procedure is
2 mins in D with A/C on
2 mins in D with A/C off
2 mins in N with A/C on
2 mins in N with A/C off

then drive the car at varying speeds, then that should do it.
thats how i do it anywayz

hope it helps

you should turn the wheels to full lock on either side, as well as put it in reverse - so it knows what it has to when under load on idle.
