Hey all,

Now that I've got the IAT Sensor I need to know what Scan Tool to get to clear the codes, my manual says that using a scan tool is the only way to clear codes, unless I have the STEALERSHIP (like that one) do it. I've go Digital Analyzer so once I've tested the darn thing and replaced it, if that's what it needs. I'll need a Scan Tool...not a bad idea to have one around anyway.

Any Suggestions would be of great value!!

Thanks!!

Remove the battery cable and cycle the key a few times or go to auto zone and get them to do the check engine light test and then ask them to clear it...

What's to clear? If the IAT fixed what was wrong, the light will go out.

Neil F., I'm going to replace my IAT Sensor, after I've checked the Ohmeter readings. If I do have to replace it, the manual says that just diagnosing (ohmeter) will cause a Code, so after I've replaced it the Code will need to be cleared and that is where the scanning tool comes in.

The manual says that a scanning tool is needed to clear the code.

I do believe that once codes pop up they dont disappear by themselves even if you fix the problem that caused the code to appear. I thought that the later Durangos 2000-2003 had the ability to clear codes, but I might be mistaken.

Unsure of the DC vehicles, but for GM vehicles, it typically takes a few "cycles" of the fixed problem before the light disappears.

Jewel - Just pull the negative cable, wait about 20-30 seconds & reattach. No more codes.

Simply pulling the negative cable will not clear the PCM. You have to pull the cable and turn the key to ON for the 20-30 seconds.
