Red face truck idle weird after disconnecting battery

so i was putting in a radio in my 03 tacoma sr5. i had disconnected the negative battery terminal to avoid any shorts or shocks. but however the next day when i was done installing and i reconnected the battery, i noticed my taco was idling kinda rough. and when gear is engaged the rpms drop really low and it idles rough. now i came up with a theory that maybe the vehicle is gonna take some time to fine tune itself(hence the computer) since the battery was disconnected. if you all think that maybe it is something else please help me, i have no cel or misfire. im stumped!!

Try disconnecting it again for a 30 seconds and then reconnect. I doubt it will do anything but it's worth a try. I would question what wires you used for the radio connections.

Cool

what would the wires with the radio install have to do with anything? but incase ur wondering i used the same wires that were in the truck to begin with. i did a google search on this n it looks like i aint in virgin territory here. this has happened to lots of people every1 has diff outcomes which sucks. but ill try disconnecting again. lets see wut happens (y 30 seconds? was that outta thin air LOL) i like u man, ur pretty cool

Typically, a capacitor takes roughly 30 seconds to fully discharge, dependant on it's size and capcitiy. Second, I have seen some people use the wrong wire before on a simple radio install. I know someone who used the wrong wire on a second gen on a CB install and when he would cue the mic, the truck would die.
