Finally I reset it again and everything was fine.

edit looks like some other people did the same thing LOL
I was always curious with when to reset things but I've never got the true answer.
The question that I always had is, "When resetting things, should the engine be off or on?"
People are quick to say that the engine should be off but there's nothing to back up the statement.

When I reset these devices, the engine was on and everything reset perfectly fine.
Now, I can see how resetting the ECU with the engine running probably wouldn't be the best thing to do, but when talking about air/fuel and throttle plates I don't see how it could have been a bad thing.
