yea they say that here too but they will let you take the tool by yourself out to check you code...dont say anything about clearing it ,,,then just clear it yourself....or you could wait and it should go off by itself....dont think pulling the battery will work but I heard someone say if you take the positive and neg cables off the batter and hold them together it will clear...never tried it I just use my own scan tool

its better if you use a tool or wait because when you do that to the battery it resets all the learned values, so it will run poorly and shift hard until it relearns all the variables. and the code doesnt erase it just restarts the drive cycle timer so that it will start doing the monitor checks in the normal order, and evap is still one of the last things it will check. thats why a scan tool is a valuable tool

SES light went out on its own upon startup this morning. That'* more gratifying than a forced reset IMO because I know that the broken vacuum line was the reason for the code in the first place, which is now resolved. Case closed! (hopefully)

Call me cheap, but now I'm thinking about returning that $12 aftermarket gas cap that I didn't need in the first place. I like the original one (that I kept) better anyway, since it attached to the fill door.
