How to:ECU Reset,Throttle & Accelerator Position Learning

I came across this info a couple of months ago while cruising the 350Z section of the
Technosquare site. With the exception of the ecu reset procedure, all the other procedures here
are available in the Titan service manual. The ecu reset procedure in invaluabe, as it allows
almost instant reset of the ecu's RAM instead of the usual method of disconnecting the battery
and guessing as to how long you must leave it disconnected.

I think it's important to do the learning procedures periodically, as it basically recalibrates the
electro-mechanical positioners, namely the throttle valve positioner and the accelerator pedal
positioners. After some use, these things get a little out of whack, and get kinda lost. This can
cause problems like loss of power and idle issues. This method restores the proper min/max
position voltages that the ecu sees from them.

I, personally, have seen the best improvement in my engine by doing the full procedure, starting
with the ecu reset, followed by the other procedures. In fact, after doing this, I got back some of
my low end grunt I'd lost over the past months. I can actually catch a bit of rubber now, which I
haven't been able to do for a long time! It also cured a slightly erratic idle I was having.

Give it a try, but be patient....it may take a couple (or more) tries with your stopwatch to get it
right.....timing is extremely important here!

Note: Make sure engine is at operating temp and all electrical loads are turned off prior to doing
the idle air volume learning. Don't think it matters for an ecu reset.
ECU Resetting Procedures

Timing is extremely critical. If it is NOT DONE within the specify time, the ECU will not reset and
the Check Engine Light (CEL) will continue to remain ON. A stop watch or an analog clock with a
seconds needle will be useful.

Operations Procedures

1. Confirm that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds.
2. Repeat the following steps (2a and 2b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD).
b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
3. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 10 seconds until
the CEL starts blinking.
4. Fully release the accelerator pedal (while the CEL is still blinking)
5. Wait about 10 second.
6. Fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for more than 10 seconds.
7. Fully release the accelerator pedal (The CEL light will continue to blink).
8. Turn ignition switch to OFF position and now you can start the car. The CEL light should be
gone.
9. If the CEL light continues to remain ON, repeat the above steps. Timing is EXTREMELY
critical to resetting the ECU.
Accelerator Pedal Release Position Learning

Operation Procedure

1. Make sure that the accelerator pedal is fully released.


2. Turn ignition switch ON and wait at least 2 seconds.
3. Turn ignition switch OFF wait at least 10 seconds.
4. Turn ignition switch ON and wait at least 2 seconds.
5. Turn ignition switch OFF wait at least 10 seconds.

Some sites recomment a third round of ON and OFF.


Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning

Operation Procedures

1. Make sure that accelerator pedal is fully released.


2. Turn ignition switch is ON.
3. Turn ignition switch is OFF wait at least 10 seconds.

Make sure that the throttle valve moves during above 10 seconds by confirming the operating
sound.

Idle Air Volume Learning (Throttle Position Learning)

Operation Procedures

1. Perform Accelerator Pedal Released Position Learning.


2. Perform Throttle Valve Closed Position Learning.
3. Start engine and warm it up to normal operating temperature.
4. Turn ignition switch OFF and wait at least 10 seconds.
5. Conform that accelerator pedal is fully released, turn ignition switch ON and wait 3 seconds.
6. Repeat the following (steps 7a, 7b) procedures quickly five times within 5 seconds.
7. Two parts
a. Fully depress the accelerator pedal (HARD)
b. Fully release the accelerator pedal.
8. Wait 7 seconds, fully depress the accelerator pedal and keep it for approx. 20 seconds until
the Check Engine Light (CEL) stops blinking and turned ON.
9. Fully release the accelerator pedal within 3 seconds after the CEL is ON.
10. Start engine and let it idle.
11. Wait 20 seconds.
12. Rev up the engine two or three times and make sure the idle speed and ignition timing are
within the specifications.
