So you are not able to clear these codes?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No, it comes back
Expert:  Ron replied 4 months ago.

In most cases if the code will not clear this usually means the OPDS unit has failed and needs to be replaced. Has that been done?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No, the light just came on
