SO I get a cable, hook up to a laptop, and drive while someone else watches, and clears the errors you mentioned, any further info on this procedure?
thanks,
Essentially, yes. Although that's a very simplified overview.
  • Get a cable; find a K-DCAN cable on ebay (here's my thread)
  • Hook up to a laptop; you'll probably get INPA software with the cable, but it's not a straightforward install. it's possible, though, clearly.
  • drive and clear the errors; simple as that - just clear the codes every time one appears - they'll begin to appear more slowly as the backpressure begins to decrease
