Interesting. I've tried that at some point. I don't think I ever
tried to read the codes and then immediately resetting them. But I
did try shorting the two terminals closest to the edge of the fuse
box at some point. When I reset the codes and then read them back I
get the original fault code - not 4444.
Oh, well... Thankfully, it's been a while since last time my car threw a code.
