just as said above...

I just disconnect my neg. battery cable for a few minutes... after reinstallation, start car w/ all the accessories off and let it idle till it reaches the full operating temperature (in most cases the fan will kick on once to let you know... unless in pretty cold weather). Shut it off and your done. Then your ready to go next time you start it.
