Transmission reset

there was a thread somewhere about smoothing out the transmission performance by disconnecting the battery for a while. What's the safest way to do that? I don't want to arc anything when I reconnect the battery. I probably would get inside and close all the doors so the interior lights were off. Am I being too cautious here? I would think that any kind of spike is bad for the system.
thanks

Re: Transmission reset

The battery is under the front passenger seat. With the seat all the way forward you can easily remove the negative terminal. Doing it while inside the car with the doors closed would be very awkward.

After the threads on removing the battery cable, Jeep did come up with a TSB that included a flash to a control module. If you haven't had that done, have the dealer check if your vehicle should have it done.

Re: Transmission reset

OK, thanks. If there is a legit way to do the same thing, I'm for that. I'm bringing it in Wed and I'll ask about having it done.
I know what you mean about the battery. I probably would have taken the terminal off normally, and put it back on from inside. I like your suggestion better.
