I put a new battery on my 2008 Chevy Equinox. I took it to get the inspection done and I was told that there has to be so many miles on my new battery before it passes inspection. I was told to drive 60...

It's not the battery itself that's the issue. When you disconnected the battery to replace it, you cleared all the data from the computer. The computer then runs a self test of all systems to determine that they are functioning properly. There are several systems to be tested, and until they pass the test, each system is classified 'not ready'. Some system tests are done very quickly, with only one 'drive cycle', and they become 'ready'. Some systems require multiple drive cycles, and take longer. For some vehicles, specific criteria have to be met. On my vehicle, before the vapor recovery system can be tested, the fuel tank has to be between 1/4 and 3/4 full.

Some testing stations (depending on state) require all systems to be 'ready'. Some require a specific number to be 'ready', e.g., seven of nine. Find out what the requirements are, and which systems still need to complete testing, then check with a dealer for your make/model to see what is required to complete testing for that (those) systems.

How to read diagnostic trouble codes for a dodge avenger. the smog technion failed my smog due to system malfution light obd2 not ready?

Was the light on or did the tech say the system was not ready? They can be two different things.

A light would need to get scanned or a code reader attached to the car may do it. Most auto part stores will hook up a code reader for free and let you know what codes are present.

If the light was not on but it stated system not ready on the smog machine that can be due to the battery being disconnected. Its basically saying that the computer needs to go through drive cycles so it can test the its systems.

I am replacing my car computer I like to know how to reset the new computer

Before you start, make sure your negative battery cable is disconnected. Once the new computer is installed, reconnect the battery cable. Since the "new" computer isn't connected to a power source, everything in its memory should already be reset, and it will be ready to go.

Emision control does not pass inspection, vaporative system,and secondary air system not ready.

has the battery been disconnected, drained, or computer codes been cleared? all of these will erase readiness monitors in the computer and will have to be driven to reset it's hard to say how far because it varies on different vehicles

My 1996 tacoma wont pass emmisions because the computer says that it is "not ready" for the test this normally happens after the battery has been removed but my battery has not been touched I've taken it...

Is the engine cold? It will say that if the Oxygen sensors aren't warm yet. Try driving it for 10-15 miles before you have it inspected. If that doesn't work the heating elements might be bad in the sensor and you will have to replace the Oxygen sensors
