Question Computer Relearn After Battery Unhook

So a few weeks ago, I swapped out my steering wheel, and had to unhook the battery. I knew the computer was going to reset and read the relearn process somewhere. I let it idle, and drove it hard on the road and highway for a while so it could relearn my driving style. But now on the highway, I feel like I have to give it much more throttle to make it shift down and accelerate than before I did the swap. The shift points feel different and it feels more sluggish. I was considering just unplugging the battery and doing another relearn, but I wanted to see if this was the right thing to do, or the right way to do it, to get the best shift points, I guess.

Car should not need a relearn after disconnecting the battery or changing the steering wheel.

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!
