Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!The catalyst monitor just needs time to run again and pass since the memory was cleared last. It will run and pass during normal driving as long as parameters are met for it to begin and stay there long enough for it to run. Worst case scenario would be to drive it with a scan tool in place while watching the pretest parameters while the monitor runs. All monitors will normally run within 2-300 miles at the most after having memory cleared.You mentioned a fault code and then said no codes were setting?

Please retract the reply and refund my money. I told you I could not wait. I do not need anything from you since yesterday. Thank you.
