I had this same issue with my "Enthusiast" Durametric, but I hadn't thought of the fuse-pull hack. Thanks for that tip!I was getting the "service due" reminder but wanted to clear it since they had just done an oil change. This aspect of the Durametric software doesn't work on the 987s so I had to do it the old-fashioned way: pull the instrument cluster fuse for a bit.
Looks like you're getting her all squared away, well done!
As for the power steering pump, I blew up a couple of mine (track use) before the addition of an under drive pulley and an inline power steering cooler from LN engineering. I assume you're not hearing any whine from the system when turning hard at this point?
