How to clear ECU?

hi ive tried to clear the ecu because of a check engine light always poppin up cause of my CAI install but does not work. im following the install guide in the site by pulling the 15a fuse for 1 second but doesnt clear the CEL. Also instead of a 15a fuse i have a 20a fuse in place of it. i own a GTS and is brand new. Does anyone know the problem? Thanx

All you need to do is disconnecet the battery and leave the connectors off for about 1 hour

well actually that is what i have been doin, but i have been just diconnecting the battery for a minute and the CEL goes off, is there a difference from disconnecting it for a minute compared to an hour?

Works just fine for me and for many others... I had done this several times before I actually got the problem corrected (replaced defective o2 sensors)

Double-check that you are pulling the correct fuse... I hope you can finally get this method working for you - its a heck of A LOT easier than having to disconnect your battery all the time (but also fixing the problem that is causing the CEL to be tripped would be the best solution)

I hope things work out for you thumbsup

You should be pulling # 24...
