AU EEC Reset (disconnect battery)

Ok, if I disconnect the battery in my AU for about an hour I know the EEC is reset and has to relearn.
So when I first restart it, what is the correct proceedure to go through. I know its something to do with turning the wheel lock to lock and having AC off and then on.

Any advice?

Re: AU EEC Reset (disconnect battery)

this was posted in another thread by Steve_T

"FYI, the correct procedure (as taken from my AU2 workshop manual):

-Reset computer (to start fresh again) by removing power.
-When power is re-connected, start car and idle in this sequence...
-2 minutes idling with the trans. in drive and A/C on.
-2 minutes idling with the trans. in drive and A/C off.
-2 minutes idling with the trans. in newtral and A/C on.
-2 minutes idling with the trans. in newtral and A/C off.
-Now go and (test) drive the car for at least 5 minutes.
"
by (test) drive he means drive it like you stole it coz the ecu has to learn all settings from idleing to going flat out.

Re: AU EEC Reset (disconnect battery)

Just out of curiousity these reset procedures are for an Auto. Does it have anthing for a manual or do i just ditch the 2 minute sequence in Drive mode.

Cheers,
Gary.

Re: AU EEC Reset (disconnect battery)

Ive always just disconnected the bat.
Once reconnected, idle for 2 mins, with aircon on and off, lights, etc.
then gone for a thrash.
The EEC5 may be different.
