Tips before going to the dealer?

Im going to take my rig in and get the latest flash that wipes out the buzz flash. I wanted to know what i need to do to remove my sct, I know i will need to return to stock. But do i need to remove the battires for a while? I also herd that the truck will need to be driven for some miles after you return it to stock? i dont know what that will do, maybe some one can clear that up for me. Any help with this will be great!!! Thanks Guys

Bobby

I've heard to reprogram to stock, unplug the batteries for 30 min, and then drive it for a couple hundred miles or so before you take it in. Hope this helps.

The way that I understand it...and mind you that I'm not a mechanic...is once you return it to stock you can disconnect the batteries and that will erase all codes stored in your system. I've never had to do it but there is a thread on here some where that addressed that issue.
