The fuse box in the engine compartment. It's labeled BACK UP. Some people say it needs to be disconnected for about 30 seconds, but others say it takes about three minutes for a "full reset."

I believe it's in the fuse box in the engine compartment. In my car it's the first fuse in the top row on the left. I've always heard to simply disconnect your negative battery cable, leave it unhooked for 30 minutes, hook it back up, crank the car and let it idle for 3 minutes.

I am just curious on what you think you will achieve by resetting the ECU after replacing the clutch, radiator, and a brake job?

The right side of my engine bay was making a weird noise kinda like a vibration or a vaccum i was thinking it was ethier the radiator or the air intake which is stock.

And I just reset the ECU and it actaully dramatically reduced the sound, i have a feeling it had something to do with the radiator.

I wasnt expecting any horsepower increases or anything hahahha BTW just got this car 2 days ago. Soon im going to tune it up.
