Is there a way to reset the adaptation codes short of taking the car to the dealer
and paying out the ying yang---cna this be done by unhooking the battery--
can it be accomplished by hooking up a lap top?
Thanks:dunno:

I'm not familar with car soft--what is that?
Thanks
It's a soft car lol.

Actually it's the software, you need to buy it, and also have a laptop. You can change a lot of settings in a car, read codes, and many more.

carsoft is ****e, dont watse your time with it. what you can try doing is a battery reset. disconnect the +/- cables from the batt and touch the together for at least 30 sec. you should use a fused jumper if possible when doing this.

This won't do anything but waste your time. All emission related data is stored on non-volatile memory as per the EPA.

I guess it depends on what you mean by "adaption"
Long term & short term fuel trim are "adaption" values.

Throttle adaptation and tranny adaption values have nothing to do with emission, but are adaption values.
