So does anyone have the directions for resetting the ecu. I know to disconnect the battery and plug it back in but how long do I need to wait? Also should I let the car idle for awhile before driving it. Thanks.

disconnect the battery, pump the brake a few times, then reconnect. doesn't matter about idling. the rpm will jump around on the first start up, then itll settle. it takes about 10 drive cycles before the ECU learns the new trims.

^ I thought I read in another thread that there would be problems with the automatic windows or some other bcm issues after a reset?

Simple fix, just re-program them. Easy to do. I've done it several times.
