Looks like my SIA monitor is set. I didn't follow the cycle mentioned above since thats hard to do on public roads. I just drove around almost 100 miles in traffic/highways which includes various variable speed, multiple start (since I stopped for errands) and warm start. I just checked and my OBD-2 device is telling that it is set now. Thankfully :). Thanks a lot to everyone who helped. Overall, this year, I spent around ~$1500 on various plastic useless hoses for this car which tends to crack after a while. Now hoping for 2 additional years will be fine until next smog is due.
