I think its for all late model mustangs, 99-04 I know it works for, Unsure about the 94-98.
yeah, it's true for pretty much all the OBD1 & II computer systems.PancakeOfDoom said:ok, i've heard that you can disconnect your battery, do some 0-60 runs or whatever, and your car will adapt to the gearing, and i've also heard of some trick you can do w/ your a/c to trick your computer into switching to a program that compensates for the compressor being on..., are these true when talking about the 2001 stangs? or is it only newer models?
Sounds like the ford people were into Star Wars a little to much when naming the systems.:kooky:kscoyote said:yeah, it's true for pretty much all the OBD1 & II computer systems.

works more on the 94-98 cars -but when you turn on the ac, the computer advances the timing to compensate for the AC compressor. If you turn it on, then turn it off, it gives you a few seconds of power advance timing. Sorta like a power tuner for 87 octane for a few secs.mac_mogul said:Hmm, I can vouch for the retraining of the computer, that works well... but whats this A/C trick you speak of?
yeah, it's switching programs.PancakeOfDoom said:ya, i noticed when i switch the a/c on or off when i'm idle the rpm changes by about 100rpm for a few seconds..., not sure what the hell that would mean if i were moving
TO reset the ECU, just disconnect the positive terminal on the battery for a couple of minutes.jthm2004 said:could someone tell me how to reset the ecu this way? im not sure. i figured since i have a 160 thermo in it I should probally go ahead and do it
