Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Okay, if there is no problem with the AIR system, then the monitor is all that is left to do and you have to be patient for 3 drive cycles to complete and pass.

I attached 2 docs for you to review and follow. DO NOT disconnect the battery or clear the computer or you will have to start all over again.

Thanks, Ron
