Ive always wondered this. If you were doing something to your car and remove the battery cable for a precation, does this clear your ecu? If i have an sct tune on my car does it reset this? thanks guys

No you would have to reflash it back to stock form with your tuner

He's right , stock tune is stored in your flasher . And removing your battery cables for safety precaution's doesn't remove the tune . It will reset everything as far as your air/fuel ratio so when you start it up again and let it do the idle adjustment .

Then take it out for a normal drive so the Ecu can relearn your driving habits again.

it takes about 50 miles or so before ecu resets itself so if you have check engine light it will go out but will return

^^^ No you would not have to reload your tune! Say if you were changing out your battery or clening the terinal's say. No you would not have to tune again! Just like thou's guy's were trying to say![slap]
