    Re: reset my computer now emmisions test not ready? help

    Any time you "clear all codes" the system will need either a dedicated GM Drive Cycle or a week or so of normal commuting during which no P emissions fault occurs in order to set the necessary "system ready" flags for the emissions test set. There's no need to ever "clear codes" - the system will automatically delete codes which do not again set after a specific number of successful start-run (not "drive") cycles.

    If your car has a permanent or recurring P emissions code it will never pass emissions testing - until you diagnose and repair the problem that sets the code(s).

    This is not the forum for normal PCM reset and car operation questions. Moved to Northstar Performance.
