You must reset the ECM, in order to do this you must get an OBD II compliant scan tool. Carefully follow all directions that come with the tool. Make sure to write down all codes that are retrieved when the tool completes its scan. However this will not guaranty that your car will pass, sometimes an old code will remain in the system and cause you to fail but if a code reoccurs you will need to repair the problem that caused the code to appear in the first place. in the case of a recurring code I recommend that if you aren't a wrench yourself that you find a mechanic, but don't let him know that you reset the car or that you have the tool. That way if he tries to get cute with you you'll know it and so save yourself a lot of wasted time and money. If you're worried about the cost of the tool consider this - an OBD II scanner works on all cars from 1996 to today on cars and trucks that were sold in the US. So it is a good investment.
how far do i drive my mercury la sable ls to reset emmission control computer
to reset the old codes you must drive it for atleast an entire drive cycle
You do not have to reset the computer. The ECU will take care of itself and there is nothing you have to do but drive the car.
Depends on what you mean by reset. In most instances a Restart is considered a reset. But to completely reset the computer to factory default you would need to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
You take out the battery and reinsert it.
If you are referring to when the computer again can monitor the systems after a manual reset, it is usually between 50 and 100 miles.
No, but you can reset by disconnecting the battery for a little while to reset its memory and leaned values. Or it will relearn itself while you drive it.
Under the my computer option right click onto your C Drive or whichever drive you wish to reset the data of and click onto the format drive option. this will reformat the hard drive and delete the information of it. Unless you are trying to reinstall your operating system, this is the best choice. hope this helps!!
Get Norton anti virus or if that dont work reset your hard drive
You don't reset the computer. The ECU will relearn after a few driving cycles. No input necessary on your part. Just drive normally.
drive it about 30 to 50 miles,you reset the computer when you replaced the battery. What you want is info back in the computer ,that is why a minimum of 30 to 50 miles must be driven to put info back in.
A computer can be rebooted by pressing the power button off and then back on,or by pressing the Reset button.

unhook the battery for about a minute or so, then reconnect!
Drive it. The system has to go through at least two "drive cycles" to complete the reset. It may idle and run rough until it has completed the process.
no you don't need to reset the computer. but it is always a good idea to reset it when replacing any censors. just unhook the battery cable( negative) for 30 seconds then put it back on and drive 50-75 miles to reset the computer.

Unhook the battery for about an hour then reconnect it and drive it for about 20 minues.
