As I mentioned, I have already done the driving cycle and I have driven this car on highway yesterday for 90 km, and in traffic as well, I also did the AC and Rear window thawing system while idling for three minutes, today I drove 30 km on highway in one session and in the city as well. Still after this the test came out the same, those two systems were not ready.
So if the car's computer was not reset by me doing the driving around and compleitng the driving cycle, are there other ways to 'reset' the computer insead of starting to change parts?
Here are instructions to do the drive cycles, if they still don't complete they you will need a scantool to make sure all of the pretest conditions are being met which is why I recommended bringing it to the dealership if possible since this can be a pain. Parts probably do not need to be replaced, if that was the case the check engine light would come on. I would at least bring it to another shop if they are recommending parts without saying what parts or why. Let me know if you have questions or if there is anything else I can do to help, thanks.
