Re: unsetable idle after change the battry
I would recommend cleaning out your throttle body. When the battery was removed the computer lost its learned values, and now its not compensating for the carbon build up in the throttle body, that is now restricing airflow. you can drive it and it will relearn it, but its just learning how to work around a problem. I would say its better to fix the problem. My customers dont want to drive their cars until they stop running like junk so they can learn new throttle position values.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If test light is a 12 volt light tester AND ILLUMINATES BRIGHT it shows that a component is actively trying to complete a circuit and yes drawing power causing a drain on your battery, now if test light illuminates low, possibility could just be ecm memory or antitheft system active . either way this test should only be done with a 12 volt test light as if you use a 5 volt (computer friendly) tester , false light will have you chasing a ghost. trust me. that trick helps by checking for parasitic draws a 12 volt tester does not illuminate when keep alive memory voltages are present . those voltages are not enough to drain over night. good luck
If everything was ok before you left your lights on then the battery needs a full charge! The battery will not receive a full charge by idling, to charge the battery you need to take it on a long run in top gear such as a motorway for about 15 to 30 minutes!
There is a very un-used setting in your alert window you can setup and
use when you are on the road for extended periods of time. It's call the
rest feature. You can program in the amount of time you would like to
drive before your car will remind you that it's time to take a break.
To set/unset it go to your settings window, go to alerts and rest.
Change it back to nill or "-" to unset it. That will stop it from
popping up every half an hour (0.5h).
Have you checked the voltage at the batry when running? Sounds like alternator is not working properly. The battry is only used for starting, once started the alternator runs all the accesories & charges the battry. If not chargeing the vehicle will **** battry power. You may have a good battry surface voltage but a bad battry. The battry should be load tested as well.
with newer cars battery has to be completely charged up fpor the alternator to work check that or take battry into good yeare and have tested and charged should solvre the problem if your in chicagoland I can help email me good luck
its easy open ur car bonit & c if there is battry there ,then lose ur battry clips & make some space for heand & then first pull ur light holder then rubber cover then there is lock on bulb open it & then finally with care pull up the bulb & replace it .
