EVAP MUSY HAVE BETWEEN 1/4 AND 3/4 TANK TO RESET AND CATT NEEDS TO READ O2 SENSOR FOR A PERIOD OF TIME B4 RESETTING. YOU MAY HAVE TO DRIVE LIKE 45 FOR 3 TO 5 MILES WITHOUT TOUCH BRK PEDAL AND START THIS WITH 1/2 TANK OF GAS AND AFTER 5 MILES CONTINUE TO DRIVE FOR ANOTHER 15 TO 20 MILES

For evap you must have more than 3/4 tank of gas. This monitor starts in morning when car is cold. We recommend filling up your fuel tank, drive from first thing in the morning for a while and make sure to drive about 65 miles/hour on the freeway for at least 5 minutes. This may help.
