How do I reset the computer to a 2004 crown victoria

I take it you changed the computer. Or why would you reset the computer that was in the car. If you replaced the computer with one specifically the same part number the computer should not need reset. If you are talking about resetting miles, that won't happen.

Odometer reading has changed on 2005 Sierra 1500 GMC truck

These year models are very bad with problems related to the gage cluster. You can replace but first I would reset the trucks computer by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery for about 20 minutes. This will reset the computer and maybe fix the reading on odo. Thanks.

The Change Oil (not oil light) in my 2002 Camaro came on less than 10 miles after it left the shop for new brakes, and less than 300 miles since its last oil change. What would cause the change oil light...

If you changed your oil just less than three miles ago, you just need to reset the computer. In this vehicle it may be the same as other chevys. what you will need to do is turn the key to the run position. Depress on the gas pedal three times and turn off the key. this should reset the computer. good Luck

Drive time computer reset

Drive cycle has to do with normal everyday type of driving. So many stops, so many miles, fast driving, slow driving. My car went thru a drive cycle in about 38 miles on my way to work. My daughters took 3 days and about 78 miles. So just drive it like normal.

some cars will take longer y would you reset your computer before an inspection --the longest component to reset is the catalytic converter seen some cars as long as 170 miles-if u reset because of a code the code may come back and show up as fault on computer also--- if it hadnt been repaired
