Sounds like a computer issue or something.


Is there a special methond on S197 mustangs for removing and replacing the battery terminals to prevent computer damage?

Drive by wire...there is no physical connection between the TB and the accelerator.


Might try to unhook the battery again, and let it sit a minute or 2?

or hook a scan tool up and retrieve the codes, then we can go from there. Sounds like you have more than just a dead battery issue. Also, dont forget to re-initialize your windows

you might try asking in the S197 section also:
http://mustangforums.com/forum/4-6l-...iscussions-69/
you will find more people there with your car than here...

He was confused at the OP and title because our sn95s have a cable operated TB whereas yours is controlled by the CPU. You technically posted in the wrong section but it's not that big of a deal. I'm sure you would get similar responses from the s197 section.
