Re: P2109 after flat battery

since doing the reset did you switch the ignition off and restart? the t/c light stays on after the reset and goes off on next startup.

have you deleted the trouble codes with your scanner and seen if they come back? the cel wont go off for a lot of codes until its been reset.

Re: Calliper winding tool
