    First off when you start the engine your car uses the alt to power everything not the battery so taking it out would do nothing unless you had a bad alt. Secondly you probably have the "always ON" wire connected to the "Ign. ON" pin of the ecu.

    Get a multimeter and check the power pins on the ECU. You can use the ECU pinout to tell you which wire should be connected as Always ON and which one should be ON in Run/Start.
