E46 ECU Reset for Adaptations after new parts/maintenance

Does disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes achieve this? I have read about the throttle reset(key method) and using inpa(what is this btw? just a cable and software).

i will be tackling the vanos seal and anti rattle kit repair and o2 sensors this weekend and would really appreciate some clarification.

Thanks

In INPA you can reset EVERYTHING. If you do not have INPA try disconnecting the battery. May not help but will not harm anything either.

remove the negative battery cable from the battery and touch it to the positive for 15min. this will do a battery reset and draw the power from the modules to reset the adaptation values
