Comment 1
AWESOME! IT WAS, SO HOW IS THE IDLE RELEARN DONE? DO I NEED TO GO TO A MECHANIC FOR THIS? -

yes. it has to be done through a scan tool. Roy -
Answer 2
Hmmm, if the battery was disconnected for a long time (more than an hour) yes. Fire up the vehicle, let it warm, then drive the crap out of it! You will have it die at lights/stops. After a few, it will re-learn everything. Same issue on 2007 SX-4 and 2001 and 2002 Vitara. -
