Clearing Codes

Print

WITH A SCAN TOOL



Control module reset procedures are a very important part of OBD II System diagnostics.

This step should be done at the end of any fault code repair and at the end of any driveability repair.

Clearing codes can be performed by any of the methods below:



Clear the control module memory with the Generic Scan Tool (GST)
 
Clear the control module memory with the vehicle manufacturer's specific tester
 


NOTE
The MIL will may also be de-activated for some codes if the vehicle completes three consecutive trips without a fault detected with vehicle conditions similar to those present during the fault.

WITHOUT A SCAN TOOL



If there are still codes present, either the codes were not properly cleared (Are the codes identical to those flashed out previously-), or the underlying problem is still there (Are only some of the codes the same as previously-).
