Clearing Balmar MC-614 Error Codes?

Hey ya'll - been having some grief with the Balmar 6 series alternator which gave me overheating code E22 ... also, the battery temp sensers which were non-existant , and got the E11 & E13 codes. The alt was running hot, I suspect prior owner had it submerged at one point (long story, don't ask), and it ran up to 150c in temp before I noted it and shut it down. I took the belt off the alternator until I get a new bosch put in next week. Installed the batt temp sensor for house bank one. Leaving bank 2 alone.

I'm still getting The same 3 error codes after I programmed the B-1 sensor for 42 degrees. I'm still getting the E22 code, the E11 & E13 even though the belt is off the alternator and it's not providing charge or turning.

How do I clear the error codes? it's not in the manual and the company guy fed me wrong info that didn't do the trick. Any help appreciated.

Have you tried
Quote:
. Advisory Codes
Descriptions for these codes can be found in Figure 14. To
reset advisory codes, access the Advanced Programming mode
as described at the beginning of Section VIII. AP mode will
cycle three times and return to normal mode. Codes will auto-
matically reset when AP mode is complete.

did it, it worked. Duh.

Thanks for the inertia though -

Cheers & thread closed.
