Hello again Ali..
Ok I have your vehilce.. Now this shouldn't be happening as the system should have reset when you did the job..
Try this Ali.. switch the engine off.. then switch the Ign to position 2..leave like that for 30 secs to 1 min.. then switch off.. and then restart the engine. That is a method of manual reset.
If that doesn't work, you either have a fault with one or more of the sensors..or, its going to need resetting with plug in diagnostic equipment.
If it comes that - at the same time the plug in test would tell you if a fault exists on the system and where..
So work through as above -one way or the other you will get this sorted as above.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
~~~~ Meantime - Please do click on the "Exc / Ok rating" for me at this time.. "Thank you" in advance for that .
.. Note that you can get back to me anytime at all after doing the rating - it doesn't close you out --
Best Rgds, MIKE.
