Actually you need to turn the key to Position 2 prior to reconnecting the battery. Also you attach the positive lead first, then the negative. Failure to follow this procedure could damage some of the electronic components, the CCM is the usual suspect. Its all part of the OEM-specified procedures documented in VADIS/VIDA.
