    Default Reset Engine Management Light

    Hello Everyone,

    I just have a quick question about my engine management light...

    I would like to reset my engine management light. Now reading a few posts I do this by disconnecting my battery for 20 minutes. My first question, is this correct? The second question is that if I do this will it reset my onboard computer i.e. reset the milage and average mpg?

    I have also read that this will reset the ECU and may change a few things, is this advantageous or not?

    Any advice will be greatly received and thanks for taking the time to look.

    Cheers, Guy.

    Yes, I think it'll reset the BC mileages to zero.

    Once you've reconnected the battery take it for a little drive. The ECU will learn your style of driving instead of the previous owners. Not sure whether it's advantageous or not. Depends on how the previous person drove the car.

    Cheers boys, disconnected battery for 20 mins, everything was reset and no radio code was required. I think it has made it drive a bit more smoothly but that might just be psychological!?
