it might take 100km or so of normal driving to relearn the engine conditions etc

Re: ea computer malfunction need help to fix

Go out and give it a WOT tune, works for me.

Every time I reset it, a quick 100kph () blast solves all problems. Probably gives me crap as economy but hey.

Does the Brock have it's own ECU or is it a standard jobbie?

Re: ea computer malfunction need help to fix

I'm guessing the reason is the Brock used the standard ECU. My ECU hates resets cos I've changed a few things with the engine, take a little while to figure it out.

There's a proper way to reset base idle, do a search or someone will know.
