    Yes. The ECU got reset when you disconnected the battery and it's going through its re-learning cycle now.

    Where did you find that for $199? That costs $400+ at the places I have looked

    Hey john_eckels...that is an Australian website you linked to. AU$400.00 = US$262.00. Although the shipping of a battery from Australia to the US is going to cost you a nice chunk of change.

    Cheers.

    I didn't even notice that. I stopped by Batteries Plus a while back and they wanted over $400 for one. I thought their prices were a bit high, but they seem to have some batteries no one else has.
