    My gf's little brother's GSR's engine light is on so im trying to help him diagnose it. But i forgot how to reset the ECU :lol: after running the error code test. As i remember it, you turn on the car for 5-10 mins and turn it off. Pop the hood and remove the 10amp fuse near the battery terminals. Turn the car on again and let it run for another 5-10 mins. Turn off the car and put back in the ECU. is this righT?? thanks for the help guys.. Later

    i was always told to warm the vehicle up first then take the fuse out and let sit for five minutes.

    put it back in and let idle for 15 minutes with out touching gas or anything.

    Jump the two contacts of your diagnostic connector with a wire or paper clip. It's the 2 pin plug (female) located under your dash on the passenger side. Jump that plug, turn key but don't start engine, count flashes. Easy.
