If you disconnected the battery and drove 10 hours on it you could have fried the alternator regulator What code did the CEL give? .. NOT THE COMPUTER

Sometimes it's cheaper to ask an expert before you do something that your grand father would have done, he would have been ok, but with these newer cars the battery is the surge protector for the PCM ABD the other modules and circuits.
