This is drive cycle to perform. Must be done twice on consectutive days and done as exactly as described:

NOTE: In the final phase of Drive Cycle, it will be necessary to find a straight piece of road to ensure that:
-The speed does not drop BELOW 35mph
-No traffic conditions are encountered which will force the vehicle to stop
-No excessive use of throttle is used to maintain the 35mph
-Lifting off the throttle completely is NOT required.

-Switch ignition on for 30 seconds
-Check with diagnostics for DTC’s
-Ensure engine coolant temperature is less than 60C/140F
-Start engine
-Allow engine to idle for 2 minutes
-2 light accelerations (0 to 35mph with light pedal pressure)
