Question EECV Re-learn

Well i decided to try it out since my clock needed to be adjusted for daylight saving anyways. I have disconnected the negative battery terminal and intend to leave it over night hoping that the computer will re-learn.

Should i just reconnect it after one night or should i reconnect it when i actually want to drive it.

Thanks in advanced..

confused

Just becarefull doing this. Not long ago I had to have my battery replaced and I got talking to the tec. He claimed that they have had some problems with Fords especially the AU when you go to restart the engine after having the power disconnected. On the initial restart the engine goes to max rpm and stays there for a short period. The rev limiter seemed not to work in this period.

You shouldn't connect the battery till you want to drive it.

I've never seen this on a AU going past rev limiter but there is a special way to start a AU when jump starting to stop frying the ecu. this might useful to somebody maybe??
When your ready to start the car,, with jumper leads (one of earth one on positive). have a small wire made up with small male splade clip at each end of it.
pull the cover on the relay box under bonnet. have key to ignition/engine off. There is... five replays in the box near battery? pull the top left, then you put the wire you have with splade clips, one end into the top hole and the other end into the bottom hole of the relay thats removed, should jump the car. Easy but hard to explain.

Yeah i won't be driving it till Wednesday, so i'll connect it back up then.

With my experience of disconnecting the batteries in falcons is that the idling goes funny for the first few km's. I guess this is because the computer is re-learning.

When i'm driving after re-connecting the battery, is it true that i have to drive it hard, if so should i take it to redline (once engine is warm) or should i just drive normally?

I was going to suggest that if your normal habits aren't to take it to the redline, they should be quickly altered, but it doesn't seem that I have to suggest this after all :D

What was your original problem?

In order for the computer to return to factory settings, ie reset the KAM (keep alive memory) you only need to have the battery disconnected for about 5 minutes.
Reconnecting the battery does not start the relearn process. Once you start and drive the car, the short and long term fuel trims start "learning".

The above is not possible.
The engine cannot go to max revs with a closed throttle.

EF falcon guy;Listen to mbrown 42, he's hit the nail on the head.
