friendly reminder: if you have fold-down seats, fold them down before disconnecting the battery. if you don't.. throw a rag or something over the striker so nobody can accidentally close your trunk on you. if you have a keyhole, great, but if your car is like mine and doesn't... less great

it's a little safer to do the ritual of putting the ecu to sleep by simply leaving it alone for 10 minutes.
