Battery disconnect, Dead battery

Battery disconnect, Dead battery

ANY TIME the battery is disconnected for ANY reason, a new PCM has been installed, or the calibration has been reflashed, the adaptive strategy for the "Engagement Schedule" MUST be updated.
1. Install diagnostic equipment and monitor TFT.
2. Warm the transmission fluid to 130F degrees as indicated by the TFT.
3. Perform 5 engagements from PARK TO REVERSE
Each engagement must be five seconds apart.
4. Perform 5 engagements from DRIVE TO REVERSE
Each engagement must be five seconds apart.
5. Perform 5 engagements from REVERSE TO DRIVE
Each engagement must be five seconds apart.
6. Perform 5 engagements from NEUTRAL TO DRIVE
Each engagement must be five seconds apart.

I just had some trouble today in this department i believe. My truck would not shift into any gears so i reved the engine up a little and it slamed into the gear i had it in. Then as i go to drive away the truck dies. I start it back up and it dies again. So i put it in park and it looses all power. I get out and see that one of the positive wires ends on my drivers side battery is glowing red and loose. So i tighten it down and the truck did good on the way home. Im hoping this was all the trans problem was, was a loose positive wire. Is that a possibility? Also i didnt do this procedure you posted above, what would happen if this isnt done? Thanks
