On some vehicles disconnecting the battery still clears the computer. Drive it for a few days with the gas tank between 3/4 and 1/4 so the computer can run the diagnostics on all the systems and set the readiness monitors. Then you'll pass. You can pass with 1 but only 1 readiness monitor not set. HTH. -Jim

Yes, u actually cleared stored data and now it has to re scan sensors. As mentioned above. If u need to get it smoged ASAP. drive it on the freeway for about 50 miles and on the street for anither 25 and it should be ready for smog
