Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved. Specific drive cycles need to be done for each monitor. There are also pretest conditions that must be met before the drive cycles. Here are a copy of the drive cycles so you can try yourself. If your not able to do it yourself your probably better off paying a shop a hour labor to do it with scan tool which walks them through process to make sure all the requirements are met. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
