You need to read the code. Don't just clear it. Understand what it's telling you. I doubt disconnecting the battery will clear the code. It shouldn't require reprogramming of your remote start after disconnecting the battery. That would be a terrible design.

Pretty sure it's the 0420 code. From what I've read it's common with these cars..some people say leave it and it goes away..well see..gonna look into it .

You could get a cheap scan tool for around $30 or you could run down to your local parts store. Most of them will read the codes for free.

"some people" can have a mix of complete boobs parroting something they thought they read correctly. I would read the code.
Its 2019... how do you not have a bluetooth code reader of your own???
I would have a small notebook handy for all the "quirks" your 2005 will exihibit...lol. Its telling you something... despite what "they say"

Cruise light always flashes when CEL illuminated. Annoying, yes.
