    Your "mechanic" is wrong. Take the vehicle to someone who has a real scan tool to look at data stream and clear codes.

    I don't care how long you have been going to this "mechanic", find another one.
    A real enhanced scanner will be able to read serial data and trouble codes. I suspect your "mechanic" doesn't know how to use "his scanner". Good luck
