Thanks for visiting Just Answer,
How many miles have you driven the vehicle?
The vehicle should be driven at least 60 miles without turning the vehicle off before the monitors will reset.
Isn't a specific set number of miles that you need to drive, but sometimes you have to drive the vehicle a long way before they will set.
Probably 80 to 100 miles
I would make sure the battery is in good condition, and continue to drive the vehicle without re-clearing the codes.
Make sure to hit highway driving, stop and go driving and everything in between.
There is a specific drive cycle for each monitor, so if you can tell me what monitors aren't setting I can provide the actual drive cycle pattern that needs to be followed in order to reset the monitor.
I will need to get back to my mechanic on this as I don't recall which monitors were on....Please hold for a couple of minutes while I call him.....
Hi..he says EGR, Catalytic convertor, Cat. conv monitor, and O2 sensor. He suggested that I leave the car with him tomorrow so he can drive it with his reader to diagnose the problem further. What can I do as far as any other recommendations, alternatives, or options??.
Well, the issue is really internal to the vehicle's computer. Driving it with the scan tool is a great idea. For some weird reason if the monitors aren't setting, replacement of the computer might be needed, however I doubt it will get that far. I do believe the vehicle just needs to be driven some more.
I am going to change the way the chat looks and provide you will the drive cycle instructions.
