Well, they might mean one thing or another when they say "relearn" depending on the year of the vehicle. If this is about a 94 model or later what they may mean is that it needs to be programmed by a shop that has the ability to do so before it will work in your vehicle and it may not even be able to start the engine before that has been done to it. Prior to 94 what they may mean is that idle speed and fuel control parameters need to be relearned by the computer as you are driving it for best performance and that the engine may run a bit poorly until the computer does this [it does this by itselft based on engine conditions and how you drive] If the vehicle starts, runs normally, and the "check engine" lamp is off it probably doesn't need any programming. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

Check if you have a main fusible link which is a wire that is suppose to melt to prevent the smaller relays from damage. It would be a wire from the battery to the main fuse box or a wire from the starter relay bundle to the main fuse box.
