always remove the neg first, I do not think that a ford gt has much memory so a stick in the cigar lighter is not necessary
I want to avoid any trauma (to instruments, etc...) when doing a battery switch. Are you guys using any "OBD memory saver", or some specific technique (negative off first, on last)?
I can tell that it makes a significant difference in how the car runs, but it does save the radio station memory. I drive my car often enough that I'm always running the drive cycle anyway.
Tony, yes. I "can't" tell. I'll blame autocorrect...Did you mean you can't tell. I have never been able to detect a change on any vehicle. The only thing it does is prevent having to do the full drive cycle if you have to change the battery before an emissions test for places that use obdii readiness as pass/fail criteria. CA,NV,CO and others are doing it that way now. That's why tunes that disable o2 sensors or egr are problems in those places
Unless I’m doing something wrong it appears the Odyssey AGM25 does not fit. It fits in the tray, bolts down, but the frunk liner no longer fits as it rests on top of the battery and is not seating properly. The odyssey is taller - the top of the odyssey battery plastic housing is as tall as the top of the terminals of the Optima. Anyone else with this issue?Yes.
I didn’t move the terminals themselves as they are in a fixed position. I just rotated the wires out sideways and then clamped them down so they do not rest on top of the battery. That gives the frunk liner just enough room to settle into position on top of the battery and not the wires.How do you rotate the terminals on a AGM 25 to face foward? They don't look adjustable on the battery photos. I have one and ran into the same issue you did (too tall). I saw no option to move the terminals.
