BA Computer Re-set

greetings all
like the topic says.........
i would like to know what is involved in resetting the computer in the BA FPV's

i have been told to remove the alarm & then disconnect the battery for 10 min's

others have told me that after i re-connect the battery i have to run through all the light's, wippers, radio ect so that the computer knows that the are there


does anybody know the proper "FORD PROCIDURE"

regards
rod

Re: BA Computer Re-set

Just turn the alarm off ( if factory type ) , then disconnect battery for 10 minutes .
ICC clock is the only thing that will need resetting. When you reconnect your battery , turn the alarm on . The hazard lights will flash until you press the keypad ( unlock ) to let the computer know its there. And thats all it requires .

Re: BA Computer Re-set

So why do you have to reset it? A computer stores imfo thats programed in, isn't this done at Ford ? The only way to change it is to reprogram it isn't it ? It sounds to me that all your doing is turning it off then turning on again just like we do with our home P Cs nothing changes unless you change it, don't make sence to me?? I could be wrong.......

Re: BA Computer Re-set

That's interesting because im getting mine done next week at New Oak Ford amongts other things like the faulty boot alarm.
Regarding the computer reset Cam mentioned to me to get it done ,i think they call it a RE FLASH that ups your computer settings and the performance mode is improved again,im getting mine done by the GT technician there called Mario and like Cam he's the only person that works on our cars.Hope that may help you.
Cheers John

Re: BA Computer Re-set

Interesting, I would be keen to know how you go. I have an XR8 BA and just had the upgrade "flashed" into to the EEC and it stuffed up, after a week and a lot of angry words, and a new servicing dealer it was "deflashed" back to original. Apparenlty there is a problem with the software. be ware.... my fuel ecomony went from 13.5 l /100 to 30......and ran liek it had a plug gone...

Re: BA Computer Re-set

Hi donít want to speak for Rod, but he is away this weekend. I think what rod is talking about when you make a change or a mod on your engine, say like throttle body it takes I while for the cars computer to adjust to your new mod, we want to reset it. So it can pick up the mod that has been done strait away. So if we are at Calder testing various things we donít want have to wait for the computer to get used to the mod... rod please correct me if I am wrong...<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Donít forget Calder this Friday guy's..<o:p></o:p>

Thx...<o:p></o:p>
