That;s what I did, copy to word document send it to my cell phone and read off that while in my truck.
I did the following:rtapia said:The truck isn't supposed to be running when you do this. The ignition should be in the "ON" position. This is when the engine isn't running but you have power to your instrumentation.

Probably not. The ECU will learn on it's own in a few weeks even if you do nothing. You could also disco the Negative Battery cable for a few hours. The decriptions here are a "quick" fix to resetting it.titan3spot said:Help!! I ran through the ECU reset a couple of times and the SES never started blinking...did it still reset?
Would you mind explaining what an exhaust grounding strap is? ThanksAquaDios said:Did ECU Re-Set three times. First time gas mileage dropped. Figured it was not done correct, it's a little tricky. Second re-set minor improvement with gas mileage, no improvement in performance or quick start. Just to verify re-set done correctly did it a third time. Seems I got it right this time, mileage improved, has good power, starts quick [though it always has]. A bonus is the engine is very smoooth. Note: All minor exhaust resonace - drone completely gone. It used to have a minor vibration - drone at about 1,350 to 1,600 rom's - it's completely gone now. Another bonus, maybe this is one of normal outcome expected in the re-set - the transmission is very smooth, especially in cruise control, shifts quick, E-Z up or down hill. It used to bog a little going uphill, waiitng too long to increase rpm's, now it immediately boosts rpm's by even just a few 100's.
CONCLUSION: If you have after market exhaust with DRONE, But, have NOT installed exhaust grounding straps and you have not done the ECU Re-Set then do yourself a favor. Do both!
You just might be very pleased with the result. BTW, if you install the EGS be sure to have at least 4 - exhaust to frame.
Thanks for the education!AquaDios said:Reply to "What are Exhaust Grounding Straps" see jpg's, worth a 1000 words.
One end of the Exhaust Grounding Straps are bolted to a "U" clamp on the exhaust and the other is bolted to the frame for a good grund.
I did some research and found a few sites stating HP and MPG gains with Proper Exhaust Grounding Straps. I had severe low rpm vibrations since fabricating and installing a Cat Back with Flowmaster muffler. The first remedy was to align the entire exhaust system being sure there was no bind in the system. The next step was the EGS. These two steps eliminated about 70 % of the vibration - resonance and drone. The third step, ECU reset has about 95 % of the problem eliminated.
I noticed no difference in performance or MPG with the EGS. Also, I bought good quality grounding straps at Napa rather than order the kit.
