It's a good question. On the second repair with the pressure regulator, I did not reset the ECU (I left the battery connected) and the problem still went away. Then, another time, all I did was reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery for an hour or two. But that did not get rid of the problem for even a moment. When I cleaned the grounds, the ECU was of course reset.

Weird, huh?
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
