Pontiac Firebird 1967-2002 - Change the battery now idle sux

I had the battery out of my car for 1 day until i purchased a new one and now with the new one the idle is not right and feels like it wants to stall. Is it going through the whole learn routine because i had the battery out so long :confused: ? The idle was good before i removed the battery.

had to change my battery in my 01 ws6. it idled like crap after battery replacement. I just turned the key on (no crank) for about 1 minute. turned key off for about 5 minutes and then cranked, car idles perfect now.

it doesnt have anything to do with how LONG the battery was removed...its just the fact that it was disconnected. itll learn itself out before long, just give it some time. try just turning the key over like 01ws6 said
