good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

you cannot run monitors from a scan tool. the car must be driven.

after and overnight sit, start the car and let it warm up. then take it on a freeway for a ride. get up to 55 mph and stay there for 10 minutes, do not touch the brakes or the test will stop.

vary the speed from 50 to 60 and back. do this procedure 3 times and re check the monitors.
