Innova 5610: Erasing Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
When the scan tool’s ERASE function is used to erase DTCs from the vehicle's onboard computer, Freeze Frame data, and other manufacturer-specific-enhanced data are also erased. Permanent DTCs are not erased by the ERASE function.
Make sure that If you plan to take the vehicle to a service center for repair, do not erase the codes from the vehicle's computer. If the codes are erased, then valuable information that might help your service technician to troubleshoot the problem will also be erased.
When DTCs are erased, the I/M Readiness Monitor Status resets the status of all monitors to a no-run condition. To properly set all monitors to a Done status, an OBD2 Drive Cycle must be performed.
