Best Answer

If the battery is out of the car for more than 6 hours the computer will get rest. If you are removing the old battery and replacing it with a new one immediately you should not have any problems. You also could buy an adapter that plugs into your cigarette lighter which uses a 9V battery to maintain the power to the computer while the main battery is removed. You could buy these adapters at your local auto stores.
