ECU Reset

I did the reset, must have made a mistake, gas mileage dropped. Re-did the reset, full procedure but have not gone far enough to learn if MPG changed since 1st ECU re-set.

I think I it to work the first time, just couting in my head. I haven't driven it yet, but I got the SES to blink and then to go off.

I have tried this procedure several times and the SES light never blinks using the method and timing you recommend. Have noticed an increase on low end after resetting the accelerator pedal travel.

Try starting out in the "ACC" position, turn key to "ON" without starting your engine. Start your 3 sec. count and the rest of the procedure. This work for me.

Tried this procedure again this morning and cannot get the SES light blinking at all. It stalys on constant no matter how many times I do this procedure.

Re: How To:Titan ECU Reset, Throttle & Idle Learning Pro

My SES Light does not blink on step 4 of the ECU rest.
Nor does my CEL blink during the Idle Air Volume Learning..

I came across this info a couple of months ago while cruising the 350Z section of the Technosquare site. With the exception of the ecu reset procedure, all the other procedures are available in the Titan service manual. The ecu reset procedure in invaluabe, as it allows almost instant reset of the ecu's RAM instead of the usual method of disconnecting the battery and guessing as to how long you must leave it disconnected.

I think it's important to do this procedure periodically, as it basically recalibrates the electro-mechanical positioners, namely the throttle valve positioner and the accelerator pedal positioners. After some use, these things get a little out of whack, and get kinda lost. This can cause problems like loss of power and idle issues. This method restores the proper min/max position voltages that the ecu sees from them.

I, personally, have seen the best improvement in my engine by doing the full procedure, starting with the ecu reset, followed by the other procedures. In fact, after doing this, I got back some of my low end grunt I'd lost over the past months. I can actually catch a bit of rubber now, which I haven't been able to do for a long time! It also cured a slightly erratic idle problem I was having.

Give it a try, but be patient....it may take a couple of tries with your stopwatch to get it right.....timing is extremely important here!

From Technosquare website:

Please read all instructions and be familiar with them before any attempts.
A stop watch or an analog clock with a second’s needle will be useful.

ECU Resetting Procedures

The Easy Method:

After experimenting with different timing, and reading posts by other members, I've come up with a condensed method of doing this reset. This method works EVERY time, even w/o a stopwatch. I've used this method successfully a dozen times, or so, now w/o a watch. After a few times, you won't need a watch or instructions. You'll get so darn good at it, you'll find yourself doing it while waiting at a traffic light.

Timing is not as critical with this method...no stop watch needed. Just count in your head...one-one thousand, two-one thounsand, etc, or use stop watch. The most critical step is step #3....wait 10 sec, instead of 7.

1. Ignition "ON", count to 3.
2. Depress/Release pedal 5 times...hard and fast.
3. Count to 10 (not 7!) and fully depress pedal
4. Count to 12 (SES should be blinking), release pedal
5. Count to 10, depress pedal
6. Count to 10, release pedal.
7. Turn off ignition, then start engine. Done!

Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning
Operation Procedure

1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch “ON” and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.

Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning
Operation Procedures

1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.
2. Turn ignition switch is “ON”.
3. Turn ignition switch is “OFF” wait at least 10 seconds.
Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating sound.

Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)
It is better to count the time accurately with a clock.
Operation Procedures
1. Perform “Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning”.
2. Perform “Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning”.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch “OFF” and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch “ON” and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
7b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11. Wait 20 seconds.
12. Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are within the specifications.

I found the easiest way to do this is to disconnect the battery for ten minutes and reconnect it. This beats rubbing your stomach and head at the same while counting one-one thousand, two-one thousand, etc. Ha!

..i thought i read that pulling the cable off the battery doesn't do the same thing as the resets..

Peacekeeper:

Keep trying this mod until the light blinks. I was an unbeliever and on the 9th try I finally got it. I wasn't stepping and letting up on the pedal fast enough!

:roll: Ok, maybe I missed this but on step 3 should you count 10 then depress the peddle or depress at the same time? I have tried pressing 5 times fast and then holding it down while counting 10 and pressing 5 times then releasing and counting to 10. Nothing seems to work.
I will try going faster on step 2, counting 10 than depressing for the 12 count in step 4 next. any input would be welcome.

I am about to order an Eco3, after installing an Eco#3, is it madatory to do an ECU reset, or just recommended?

thnx
Many people say you should reset, many say don't reset. I am one who says don't reset. IMO the ECM will learn quicker if it doesn't have to relearn everything.
