A cap discharge refers to a capacitor discharge. Capacitors are present in modules throughout cars with CANbus. The amount of time required to discharge their voltage will vary depending on stored voltage of the capacitor.

Disconnect the battery. Disconnect the ECM. Leave for some time. 30mins-1hr or more.

Carefully plug the ECM back in.
Reconnect positive
Reconnect negative terminal.
