Just a quick curious question I have. I had - what turned out to be - a lose connection to one of my battery terminals, so the battery didn't get to charger while I was driving home.
Anyways, after I got a jump-start and drove home, one the way that whole time the traction light and the DSC light was on the whole time. I read up about it and I didn't find anything about it happening due to a battery issue. Anyways, got the connection fixed and it's alright now.
But do I need to worry about anything being reset? Like should I take it to the dealer or anything or is she good to go? It reset the clock, etc and the ABS light tripped out for a second. IDK, just seemed like it had a fit.
Let me know what you think

A few feet of rolling will re-learn the TCS, turning the steering wheel from lock to lock will re-learn the DSC. A few drive cycles will relearn the fuel trims. A few minutes with the engine on will relearn the e-shaft profile.
It may have a rough idle until the fuel trims are re-learned, but you shouldn't notice anything else. Disconnecting the battery is not something to be feared on these cars, and certainly no cause for alarm or dealer fees.
