DIY computer reset

I have an 07 fronty and had a mass air flow meter go out.Nissan wanted $600.00 dollars to replace So i had a buddy of mine at the dodge dealership order it for me for $75.00 Anyways let me get to the point.After fixing your problem disconnect both battery cables and hold them together for about 30 seconds.This will drain any stored memory and reset your computer to factory settings.Hope this helps

You do know there is a performance one on the market for a lot less then 600 but it doesn't put out more power.

Plus, your 07 should still be under warranty unless you are over the 36k mileage limit.

also, you only need to remove 1 cable like the negative and touch to the positive. And if it wont reach....use the wrench you have in your hand to extend or reach. Negative's always easier since theres less or nothing hooked to it..

x2 . . Exactly.

That's what I've done after adding each the exhaust and the CAI.
Resets the ECU to allow it to relearn the add-ons.

The MAF sensor is only covered by the 3 year/36,000 miles basic warranty. It's not covered by the powertrain warranty or emissions warranty.
