Hey guys I've been having to pull the plug on the battery to reset my ECU once in a while to fix my flashing trac light and engine light. I tried just pulling the ECU's fuse out from the fuse box and it didn't work... Is there a specific fuse I can pull out to reset the car? Including traction control? Thanks.

the bigger question is, why do you have to keep doing that?

what aftermarket product is causing that?

After you pull the fuse you need to wait 10 minutes or so for power to bleed off.

However, I agree with the above. You have some problem causing those lights and that problem should be addressed.

you need to "tune" the SAFC before it'll do anything to help get rid of the CEL.
