Short story, friend has a Mazda 2010 model, which keeps throwing up a code, so he gets me to scan it and clear the code.
Next time he starts the car the code comes back.
I cannot remember what the code was but it scanned as lean on bank one.
He then reads online about disconnecting the battery leads and shorting the leads against each other in order to remove all residual power.
He does this and so far no more codes.
So I wonder if it would work for commodores in some of the "wtf situations" we seem to get from time to time.

The old “turn power off” and “press power button” to drain residual energy is always done with complex computer based equipment, cars included. If the issue was a glitch it may help, but if there is a real problem, it will always come back.

In any case I wouldn’t connect +ve & -ve leads together, I’d just turn the car to accessories to drain any residual power.
