im going to by a 9volt battery that plugs into the cig lighter cause my car idles like shit for ages after ive diconnected the battery your supposed to let it iddle for approx 15min without touching any accessories then drive it at different speeds ect and its supposed to come right the funny thing is you will find the trip meter will never loose its memory

If you haven't got a 9v battery connection then the next best thing to do is go to an open road, throw your car down a gear and bag it for about 1km, this will reset your system.

I've done it a couple of time and works well.

the 9v battery attachment stops the computer that runs your car from loosing its memory every time you diconnect the battery i think it plugs into your cig lighter

The relearn procedure for a EA is allow the vehicle to be at operating temp,Disconnect the battery.Press your foot on the brake pedal to kill capacitor charge.Turn A/C off,P/S straight ahead,no foot on brake pedal.Allow to sit for 5 mins.Re- connect the battery,start car.Run in R N D 3 2 1,if auto.If manual place foot on clutch pedal and place in 1st gear.Then rotate steering lock to lock.A/C on off.Drive the car over 15km varing driving,cruise,load(hills)stop/start,WOT and idle.This is used to do from XE to EL.EF onwards is better off disconnecting the ECU and follow the same procedure.

Goodluck. CYA Lukey.
