usually just disconnecting the battery and leaving it for 12 to 24 hours will do the trick!

if not you need to either buy, or find someone with a ECU "flasher" or "reset module" and give them 10 or 20 (dollars that is) to plug in and reset the ECU

If you can't get your hands on an OBDII scantool, try this:

Disconnect the battery cables. Hold the metal ends of the cables together for about 30 seconds. Reconnect cables to battery (connect the red cable [positive] first, then the black [ground]).

That should reset the ECU. After doing this, you may have to let the engine idle on its own for about 10 minutes so that the computer can relearn the idle (engine may idle erratically if this is not done).
