Thanks for the reply!
Yes, I knew it was a weird question, but I can't explain the behavior. I have flashed multiple cars in the past, so generally know how flashing ECUs work, but wasn't sure if there was something special on Lotus cars.
Sorry, by reset I did mean clear out data by disconnecting the battery. However, the really strange part is that while it was in "weird" mode, the doors auto locked/unlocked and after disconnecting/reconnecting the battery they no longer auto lock/unlock (like originally). As you point out, disconnecting the battery normally does not change options, etc., but since this option changed after disconnect, it got me thinking that Lotus cars may be different.
Back at the dealer today, so will see how it is after this visit, and I'll ask the Tech (seems like a really good tech).
