Thank you. And how long after the cap was replaced and the code was erased did the code come back?

I replace The cap today And run The car for a while then, i scan The car And The code still pop
Lexus Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 2 years ago

Thank you. After installing a new cap it can take over 50 key cycles before the code resets. If your scan tool does not have the ability to reset it you will need to give it more time to do so.
