its misfiring, 1302 says its misfiring badly.

could be all sorts of things, engine issues, bad gas, bad injector, fuel supply pressure/filter etc, voltage supply problems, dirty maf, dirty TB the list goes on.

disconnecting the battery doesn't clear the ecu.

depends what it is, it could be possible for air leak to cause it to misfire and that won't affect it as much off idle, however if its misfiring badly enough to throw a 1302 then its got to be a decently big issue.

but i'd also say its not always easy to determine if the cars running ok at higher speeds, its not always obvious, it could be having issues.

the idle is pretty sensitive, so it'll pick up problems there more easily, say if there is a slight injector issue, but say it was a badly gapped plug it'll affect the power overall but you might not notice it.

the alternator could be not putting out enough juice, loose connection, bad battery too.

unfortunately its a fairly endless list.
