To reset it, just disconnect the battery for 20 minutes. Then, reconnect it and start the car and let it idle for 10 minues (don't touch the gas.) Then turn it off and restart it. That's it. As for exact location, I'm not sure.

Please, never write your subject lines like this. No all caps and no excessive !!! please. Plus, you topic doesn't sound like an emergency.

Just want to make sure of something...

In the Maintenance Manual...for the 24000 KM or 15000 Miles(for folks in the U.S.) service. There's a service item called "Reprogram Engine Control Management System". Is this the same as Reprogram ECU that people keep talking about?
