Anyone know how to reset the ECU module on a 2000-2001 Nissan Altima? I tried locating the screw on the ECU but without any success. Thanx!

Look at the gas pedal and go right. It's covered by a plastic panel. Unscrew that and pull it towards the firewall and then pull it (that plastic panel) out.

That I am not sure of. I'm thinking it's like that for first and second gens. It's hiding behind a panel next to your gas pedal..

On mine, the hole on the left has a sticker that says "idle control..... something." I looked in that hole and where was a white phillips screw head.

2000 Altimas can be reset just like the rest. You just gotta look closer, it's real small and you can't use a regular sized screwdriver.

The ECU looks exactly like Harry's picture. I shined a flashlight through each hole and couldn't see a screw used to reset the ECU...

Mine looks exactly like that, that white screw... Except I have a sticker around it (not covering).

would the battery be depolarized in the 24hrs?
what about all the millions of batteries sitting on shelves at auto parts stores across the nation, they're getting depolarized as well. Sorry for being a smart ass, it's in my nature
