Easily pass the test with PM.
Thoroughly sweeping out the inside of the Bradley should be your first step. Be especially careful to clean underneath the gunner's seat where the main diagnostic connections are. Dirt can foul the connectors, which hurts the accuracy of the tests.
There's not much room underneath the gunner's seat to connect the diagnostic equipment, so remove anything that has been stored there, like TMs or field gear.
If you've put a screen over the periscope face, remove it before testing. The screen makes it difficult to hook up diagnostics. For the same reason, remove the M242's feed tray.
