Help ecu scan and diagnostic help please.

hi all,,,

just a quick question about ecu re-sets etc..

I have just cleaned my carb, and after putting everything back tight and making sure my hoses are correctly fitted etc, my gtv ph2 (99) now ticks over at around 1750rpm..
she used to sit at 950rpm before i cleaned her out. she was black and clogged around the butterfly and looked like she had never been cleaned before.

she is more responsive and red lines quicker with no hesitation all the way through the rev range
running standard air filter etc...

i have since done the re-set with the key on/off for 90 secs each and then left engine to run for 10 minutes, then left her for ten, then took her for a really good run around for ages..

she is still ticking over at around 1750...have i missed something here???

my question is this,, can i use the fiat ecu scan(free version) to re-set my tickover parameters, or is there a more simple way of doing it??

she runs like a trooper and still makes me laugh but a high tickover is really a pain in the arris..

i have rulled out air leaks and a dodgy maf as she was fine untill i cleaned her out

any help info etc would be appreciated and thanks in advance...andy.

You disconnected the battery for awhile before doing the reset?
