So I take it you've found that doing this, drains any stored energy in the PCM that would hold the volatile memory? It makes sense, just want to confirm.
I haven't tried starting and standing on the brake pedal with the battery disconnected, and I've found if you don't wait at least 30 minutes, the volatile memory might NOT dump and thus the PCM won't reset.
Is anything helped by reseting the computer? What would this procedure be recommended for? Thanks. Cheers.
