Got any niggly little engine problems?, car stalling?, got random idle issues?

Try an ECU reset!

The reset sets the ECU back to defualt settings. This means all duff info picked up from sensors etc is dumped.

First insure you have radio code (if applicable)

-disconnect battery for 10 mins
-reconnect
-turn ign to second click and wait 10 secs
-start car
-turn fan to max, lights on and any other electricals you can (this sets alternator voltage drop)
-allow to idle until warm and fans cut in
-take for a blast

You may need to repeat if fault persists

this resets the engines parameters.

turn the ignition on for 10 secs

off for 10 secs

on for 10 secs

off for 30 secs

now start and let it idle for 10 mins, without touching the throttle at all.
