OK, Left the battery off while I washed the dog, fixed dinner and .. anyway 3 plus hours.

Radio kept settings.

Car runs great anyway.

What radio do you have? Factory or aftermarket?

If you did it right, should have forgotten that as well as the car forgetting fuel and idle trim controls, thus you'd have an unstable idle for awhile.

The stock Ford radios will remember the memories for up to about 25-30 minutes.

That's very strange... check under the carpetting in the trunk. Do you see a nuclear reactor?

If you want to try again, leave door open, headlights on and disconnect again. 30 minutes should do it.. though your car seems to prove otherwise.
