How to Reset the ECM
After watching the Smack resetting the ECM and getting a huge increase in
mpg, I started looking up how to reset the ECM.
There are a few different ways, but they all pretty much say the same
thing, just in different ways. The majority of the info I gleaned was from
high performance car sites where people add after market parts and need to
reset the ECM so their vehicles will adjust to the new equipment and
variables. Hopefully this will help us with our cells/systems.
