So you are not able to clear these codes?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, it comes back
Expert:  Ron replied 10 months ago.

In most cases if the code will not clear this usually means the OPDS unit has failed and needs to be replaced. Has that been done?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, the light just came on
