What kind of a tool are you using?

(Name, model, software update current???)

What codes are being displayed?

Are they "current" codes? Or are they only "history"?

If current, are you performing any diagnostics for the codes being displayed, or simply trying to clear them without actually doing diagnostics and repairs?

Other than a very expensive trip to the dealer(but some of this may be covered under warranty) the only other thing the car owner may or can do is assure that the battery is suppling the vital 12.0 volts(minimum) to the computer...
