i think its a 7.5 but anyway.....

also unplug the hazard fuse under the hood....not sure if this is a "wives tale" or not but it always works for me.....

No not wrong, you could disconnect the neg. batt for 10 seconds and that resets everything in the car. You unplug the fuse if you care about radio, and such.

Both ways are correct.
