ECU Reset

Which fuse do I pull to reset the ECU?

I hate to disconnect the battery terminal because the stereo takes so long to set up again.

Its SO much easier just to pull the fuse & replace it. The stereo takes about a half hour to setup again.

Anybody?

yeah its a lot easier to pull the fuses...if you look on your passenger side of the center console and take of the little vent near the feet, you will see like 4 fuses lined up and down i believe 2 of them are like 7.5 amps...anyways they are the only ones that lined up and down and they are near the top of the fuse box. But you really dont want to break them, they are not your normal fuse (they are longer and have 4 metal ends i beilieve) and they cost around $16 each at the dealer!!

Yah, I pulled the 4 fuses (2x 5A & 2x 7A) that have 4 prongs each on them. They were tough to pull out. I left them on the floor & was cleaning the garage for about 20 minutes & then put them back in. No effect, the ECU was not reset.

It worked, thank you. If you pull the 15A fuse for 1 second, it resets the ECU successfully. thumbsup thumbsup

I had a tough time correlating those numbers back to the fuse panel.
