2006 Sportage, having trouble with 2 sensors that will not

Customer Question

2006 Sportage, having trouble with 2 sensors that will not re-set for the emissions test. Have tried drive cycle three times, but they still are not showing ready. Any suggestions?
JA: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?
Customer: One is the O2 sensor and I dont know what the other one is. We had the air flow replaced because of a code showing that it was running lean.
JA: Are you fixing your Sportage yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have had it into two mechanics and both said to just keep driving it until the sensors reset
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Nope

Are there warning lights on or any codes other than p1000?

If the vehicle will not clear the OBD monitors after 2 weeks then its often the PCM to blame.
