They want you to put miles on the car to make sure the alarm that was reset doesn't come back on ... give it a week and a hundred miles and then they will check again


You have to run what is called a drive cycle. The monitors have to be complete so it verifies if an issue is still present even though someone turned the light off. Basically the computer is not done doing its checks.
