Your "mechanic" is wrong. Take the vehicle to someone who has a real scan tool to look at data stream and clear codes.
My mechanic is not wrong ive been to his shop for many years.his scanner is up to date. I got in contact with chevy.and they said drive for about a week..use all control heater ac..erc..etc..and it should reset by then
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
