ECU Reset

Hi all,

Just need some info on how long the car has to be driven before the check engine light flashes the all clear.

I reset the ECU on mine this morning following all the steps laid out in other threads but I'd only driven no more than 50 feet before the check engine light wash flashin the all clear. Is this normal?

Tom

Cheers mate,

I followed the steps in your post and the thing that had me wondering was the part where you say drive for at least a minute. Mine flashed the all clear signal within a few seconds so i stopped and disconnected the plugs.
