Re: Taurus won't idle after battery disconnect
the manual that came with my 90 said disconnecting the battery would reset
the computer, and once reconnected and started to let it run for 2 minutes
without touching the gas pedal for it to relearn the idle, but I suppose if
it wont idle this could be a problem.
