Either way, I wouldn't just leave your e-box unscrewed...it's pretty much a water proof box that you are leaving open...doesn't sound wise to me. But it's your car...
Okay on the cold solder joints. Anyway, the stomp test gives you a safe way to delete all codes.

My ebox is unscrewed but still placed over the ecus in its usual position. Its still a tight fit due to the rubber linings around the area, so water can't get in. I've hosed down my engine bay several times in the past year with no problems. Thanks for the heads up.
