    Hitch and wiring, aux back-up light, rear strobe lights, radio and underseat sub.
    Just because a code pops up does not mean a part needs replacing. An inspection needs to be performed first. Check the wiring and the air induction system.
    When the ECU is reset, it needs to go through all its monitors before it will pass. Two weeks of normal driving is a safe estimate.
