Alfa 156 electrical reset!

Hi all,

So, was driving my newly repaired Alfa 156 1.6 yesterday and went to turn the lights on. Obviously caused a little short somewhere and the car did its "take to dealer" bit and lurched. Pulled over, couple of seconds later she was fine. Turned off and on again and of course, everythign was fine.

Everything (bar the odometer) reset though so my trip meters, dates etc (back to jan 1 2001). That was fine, reset them all back to normal but the car does seem a bit more sluggish since as if its taking a bit more to get it to move at pace.

Checked the battery connectors etc and sanded down pillars on the battery to ensure good connection.

Any ideas?

Re: Alfa 156 electrical reset!

How long ago did this happen? I've heard that when you reset the ecu, all the running adjustments that it's made to your engine get wiped with it. If that's the case, in time the ECU should re-learn what it had stored up before, and your previous performance would come back with it.

Anyone want to correct me on this?
