Reset the computer

Is there and easy way to reset the computer? Can I just disconnect the batteries? Any side effects? 2007 2500HD new body style.

Thx!

To answer your question, NO, there is no way to reset the computer. GM dealer can reflash the program and it will change some items, but most will be there.

Disconnecting the batteries will only affect the radio and clock-seat memory - it will not erase anything else that I know of.
