Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I


Can anyone confirm if resetting the ECU also clears the error code history?

I am concerned that us resetting the ECU ourselves might lose information about problems with the car since the last service.

Hi Adam,

The answer is "yes"!

But your ECU shouldn't have any errors in it since your last service was done, as the dealer usually clears those when the do the diagnostics and they also re-set from their side once this is done.

If you want to be on the safe side, do the re-set after the next service, but this is only if you feel that your exy is not running the way it should be.

OK, so that is what I was concerned about, by resetting the ECU yourself you could hide a problem that normally the dealer would have seen when they check the ECU. If a sensor has an intermittant issue then this may go undiscovered until it fails completely.

Hmmm, not sure about that Adam, as even when you reset the ECU and you run normally, the ECU will still collect all the errors it is receiving, hence by the time you get to your dealer and you have a problem, it'll be there and recorded as a fault code in the ECU.

Don't think our ECU is intelligent enough to keep history data, it will only spit out the last and latest fault code and following your example above in regards to a faulty sensor, this fault code will be there.

The ECU re-set does not and will not correct fault codes, it will clear them only to receive them again after you resume your normal driving.

Hmmm, interesting! I have not seen the fuse box lay-out in series II. Thats why this DIY was titled as "series I" but if you can take a pic of the fuse box and the cover, maybe we can work it out along with the CD manual information I have.

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I


Hi Richard,

I've just checked the Series II service manual and the "Fuse and fusible link box" appears to be identical to Series I.

Please have a look at the following extract from the Series II electronic service manual:

Do these images appear the same as your Series II ??

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I


Hi Richard,

I think you've located the wrong fuse box here. By looking at your pics, this one looks like the fuse box which is located under the dash on the drivers side, inside the cabin??

As per my original post, item #3

"Locate the fuse box located under the bonnet and next to the battery. Pull out the 3 fuses: ENG CONT1 (15A), ENG CONT2 (10A), ENG CONT3 (20A)."

As for imageshack, use the code in this box: "Thumbnail for forums (1)"

Re: How to Reset/Reprogram your ECU - Series I


thanks NPC73 & Jalal

I have removed the fuses and stuff and will see if this makes the fuel efficiency any better.

Thanks again
