unplugging ECU

Does anyone know if I unplug and then reconnect the multiplugs on the ECU (on top of the throttle housing), will that put the Engine management light on and necessitate a trip to the dealers?? or will it be ok. Anyone done it?

Cos the fluctuating temp guage the mech reckons is a earth problem with road bumps/vibration, and although I didn't say, I did remove the throttle body to clean it just before i noticed this problem, without removing the ECU, so maybe i dislodged something frown

Sorry Dupes I don't know about that, but maybe you should get the dealer to check it (just to be safe).

Unplugging the ECU and plugging it back in didn't cause any lights to show on my car. And the temp guage does fluctuate a bit, that's normal. wink
