So I see there are a number of ways of doing this. These 2 seem to be the most popular. Do they do the same thing? Is one better than the other? Thanks#1) Loosening Positive terminal and touching it to negative side for 30 seconds#2) To properly reset it;Buckle driver seat belt.Remove fuse box top and look at the bottom of it for the PCM fuse.Remove it.Put in key and turn it to START, not run, and hold it there until you hear 2 chimes.Remove key, replace fuse and fuse box top, close hood, unbuckle seat belt.Done, the PCM is fully reset.The 1st time you try to start the engine it will delay for a second or so, that is normal.

I"ve always had success disconnecting the neg battery terminal, putting the key in and turning it to start and holding it there for 15 seconds. Reconnect the neg cable and start the truck. I"m going to try # 2 up there and see if does anything different from what mine does.

Remove positive cable from battery, ground positive cable to negative terminal for at least 30 seconds (I usually do a full minute). Reconnect positive terminal. Get in truck and turn key to ON, do not start yet. Watch gauges do their dance until they stop, then start the truck, PCM is fully reset.

I remove my PCM fuse and flip the key on-off-on-off-on and wait. I dont like pulling the battery cables because 1) I have two batteries and 2) you lose your HU settings and such
