You reset the ECU by disconnecting the battery. There's no reset button on it....I think....

Why do you need to reset?....

I've tried disconnecting the negative terminal but that didn't do the trick. I feel the connection on the ECU my be dirty or loose. I just drove the car from San Diego to Tampa Florida and she is not shifting or accelerating the same as before. It's like it is confused when to go and shift. I changed the intake filter and the MAF sensor and that helped a bit because it got pretty dirty during the trip but it still isn't right. A problem that I've discovered while trouble shooting is that the car will not communicate with an OBD2 code reader. I've tried 2. So I want to disconnect the ECU and re connect it to see what result it will yield.

Please let me know what suggestions you have if any.

What codes do you have? Some cheap code readers do not always work.
However the V6 PCM is on the passenger side under hood near fender. Has 3 plugs in it and has a cover over it.

Thanks. I found it. I'm not getting any codes at all. I disconnected all three plugs and re connected them, took it for a drive and the problem still consists. The code reader I'm using is not a cheapo either. I checked the voltage on the connector with a meter and checks good. Still at a loss with this issue.
