    Hey, I did the throttle body & MAF cleaning today... Was just thinking... I disconnected the battery for about an hour. Drives just fine so far, but it just hit me: Iremembered something the tech at the dealership told me about having reset the computer when I had it in for the pedal recall (about two months ago). Since I just reset it again today, Did I just erase the reflash programming they did for the brake over-ride or anything else??

    The program stays in the computer but the computer will need to learn how you drive again.

    Thanks Whipper. I was afraid it might clear out the program entirely. BTW--I noticed after the reset today, the truck seems to shift at slightly different schedule. I actually like it better this way. Can you tell me exactly what the computer "relearns" after the battery disconnect? I'm just kinda interested in paying attention to it's behavior for the next few days.

    It learns your driving style and adjusts shifting to suit your driving. So if you punch it a lot it will shift harder and later than a guy that drives like a granny.
