It is my understanding that they did more than just a battery pull, even tho my battery control module (BCM) died somewhere along the way when they started to work on the car. I mean why go tru all the computer system one by one and have them erased/removed and re-installed when all you can do is a battery pull? No they did more than that. A battery pull does not necessitate any kind of program re-installation...A battery pull is just a reset.

So yeah, I'm right there with you on this still, as I had the FSA 12B37 done this summer and the car behaved like a charm...for some time before tranforming back into ''Christine''. I know some peeps here did the battery pull only to see their car's returning to their bad behavior weeks after. Like I said, this is the first time that they do such a if it was rolling out of the line with fresh software everywhere. Only time will tell.
