Question about Cars & Trucks
You never said what reset means.
the CEL is not out , driving?
scan tool attached , the 13 or so monitors have yet to complete>?
to pass immision. (at the very least)
1: CEL lamp in dash (or SES) must be on key on. not started
2: the CEL must go out and stay out running, if not fix the problem.
3: the monitors must be complete. (takes a scan tool to see that)
here are some hints
keep the gas tank below 3/4 full so the EVAP monitor can finish.
drive faster than 45mph on a hot engine.
the engine coolant temperature must be 180F or more and HOLD !
if in canada, say so, as the rules are different.

Under the hood, there is a fuse block. I believe it is on the driver's side of your vehicle. Open that box, and pull the "ECU" fuse. Leave the fuse out for at least 5 minutes. Put the fuse back in, start the car, and let it idle for at least another 5 minutes. Do not drive the car, touch the gas, or even look at the gas pedal for these 5 minutes, as the ECU is remapping itself. This will properly reset the ecu and clear the codes. After this you may drive the car.

you replaced them with new ? you need to take the battery cable off for 5 minutes then drive it so the computer can relearn the codes at 5 miles
