Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.

this is very common to happen

does your fuel gauge operate ok ? or normal ?

gary, yes i do beleive thefuel gauge is fine.

Ok John usually to get all the monitors to reset and then run and pass is to disconnect the battery cables for 5 minutes then touch the 2 cables together for 1 minute then reconnect the cables and drive it usually 50 to 80 miles give or take

with no codes in the computer usually an ECM reset like I said how to do will make them reset and run for you and pass

once they all run and pass and NO codes in the computer it should pass for you
