Had to replace a battery now I can't get the truck to turn over or do anything, I don't know how to get it to reset. Please help!

I agree with James. Do you have lights anywhere?.If not, check battery and fuses. If yes, follow James advice. Make sure battery terminals are tight. Certainly could be the ECU which needs resetting. Follow the relearn ECU procedure when you go to restart.

How to do a OBD reset of error codes after replacing faulty O2 Probe on front part of exhaust.

You should be able to reset the codes by unplugging the battery for a full minute. Make sure to remove both sides, Starting with the negative side (black), then the positive side (red) It resets the ecu, which sets it back to default, erases the memory/ codes. After one minute time has passed reinstall the battery terminals starting with the positive(red) side first then the negative (black). If you start the car and the code remains then you may have installed a faulty part, rare, but it does happen (quality control isn't all that great in china). Recheck to make the same code is being thrown, because you may have another issue going on.

How do i reset the oil change warning light

Mazdas are bothersome to say the least when it comes to resetting service lights. It took me a lot of digging to find out how to clear my Mazda6 service light and I believe I saw something for an RX8 on my travels that went along the lines of turn off ignition but don't remove the key, hold down the trip reset button and turn the ignition back on for at least 10 seconds or so and the maint rqd light should go off. I think to force the car to recheck other issues which have been repaired, turn off ignition, remove key, locate and remove the ECU fuse in the fuse box, turn on the ignition to the point prior to turning the engine over and leave it for 10 minutes. Turn off ignition and reinsert the fuse and turn the ignition back to II or the point prior to starting. It forces the ECU to check stuff again and I believe this would clear errors and not service indicators.

Horrible Random misfire in car

This is common issue with Infiniti I30 1999-2001.

When the coil packs fail they burn up components/parts on the engine computer ECU. If the problem gets worse, you will need to replace the ECU or have it rebuilt.

Is your check engine light on?
You might also get code P0505
Technical bulletin also recommends to replace
The Idle Air Control Valve MUST be replaced prior to re-installation of the ECM, or immediate damage to the computer will occur again.
Common Failures:
  • No Start, Hard Start, Engine Stalls
  • Rough Idle, High Idle, or Idle Up and Down
  • Misfire to one or more cylinders
  • No signal to the ignition coils
  • Engine Trouble Codes For Idle Control Valve (IACV)
  • No Communication With Computer
  • Replacing IAC Does Not Fix The Problem
