Hi there.

After repairing this DTC, the values will not refresh until either the ignition is left OFF for 5 consecutive hours or the vehicle has been driven at a speed greater than 20 MPH for more than 2 minutes. Have you done either? Does the DTC still come back? If so, does it come back when you first turn the ignition ON, or after driving the vehicle?
