Will an oil change reset the ECU?

So I'll be going in for an oil change tomorrow at a local shop. Although this is probably highly unlikely, will the process affect my Dinan tune in any way?

Thanks!

Just make sure to tell them you have one, and tell them every time.

Made that mistake once and the asshole dealer flashed it without calling me, I will never forget to mention I have a tune again.

Cost me $90!

I would make sure they are aware of it when you hand over the fob.

thanks for the input guys! I dont mean to change the topic but i was quoted for $130 for the oil change. Is this too much? I have seen people getting their car's oil changed for half that so it makes me worry.

Parts alone in the US are $69 so that's hard to believe. While my dealer charges around $100, I suspect things are a bit higher in Canada.
