Auto zone doe,s quick scan,and sometime,s there scanner will not pick up and issue,may need to have a good mechanic scan to get the real issue,if there is no issue,he can reset it with his scanner,something autozone doe,s not do.

And disconnecting the battery does not actually do anything to clear the code.
