Disconnecting Battery

Always disconnect the negative terminal first. Yes you will lose the radio presets, clock setting, and the PCM will be reset and will go through a relearn procedure. You will lose any history codes, any current codes will probably be reset on start up. A code will be set because you disconnected the battery. That is about all that I think it will affect. Mike

Early on sailors navigated by the stars at night and the North star became the symbol for finding ones way home. Once you know where the Northstar is you can point your ship in the right direction to get home. So the star became a symbol for finding ones way home or more symbolically even finding ones path in life.

I didn't lose any settings at all when I pulled the battery on my 99, and it was pulled for many hours.. even the radio presets were still there ..

I would think so.. there isn't much difference in between 98 and 99.. I think the major difference was between 96 and 97 IIRC.. I'm sure someone will chime in on this :)

I disconnected the battery on my '96 STS the other day. I do not have a comprehensive list of items but many reset. The clock, trip odometer, mileage, run time and most other computer settings were reset. Interestingly enough, the radio presets were retained. I had to reload the CD magazine. Overall, it wasn't really a major pain.

To the best of my knowledge, with a '98 STS, the only thing lost is XX GAL FUEL USED plus anything that is based on that data....

Phillip, I guess our 96s dont retain their memory, Mike :(
