    I've always removed the battery then let it sit for 10 or so mins to make sure it reset unless youre running hondata I don't believe any buttons or pedals will do anything for changing/resetting anything

    After dissconnecting your battery for 5 to 10 min. start your car and let it idle for about 5 min WITHOUT touching pedals or steering.

    lol i reset mine like 10 times a day. no, j/k. heres my version:

    i drive around a little to get the engine warmed up, then i disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then start it up with all lights & switches off...let it idle for a few minutes, then start driving.

    you might also want to check/adjust your idle speed and timing, since it seems you want to get it tuned.

    wow that sounds just like mine! :D 'cept mine's an 89

    just in case u dont know this already, there is a plug you have to disconnect when you reset your idle, and there are two wires you have to jump when you set the timing. just dont want you to do the same mistakes i did :)

    what would touching the steering have to do with anything as far as the ECU is concerned?

    remove neg battery.
    turn on lights - will kill any current left in system
    turn off lights
    replace battery.
    done.

    there is no time or magic touching of pedals

    when you pull the neg return, and flip the lights, it drains the system of any left over elextrical charge. there is no current left to see the ecu fuse, and thus it turns it "off"
