    the best solution is to take this car to a auto zone or dealer to get the pcm scanned for a trouble code. this way, you will know the issue at hand. the engine light will continue to illuminate itself until you fix the problem...

2001 chevrolet tahoe secondary air system not working cant pass smog all I did was replace battery before getting it smog

Disconnecting the battery resets the PCM - engine computer ,an the emission monitors . A drive cycle has to be done to get the monitors to run an hopefully set. That's all you need to do is drive it for few days of different driving conditions - city , highway ,from cold start . google GM drive cycle . OBD Monitor Not Ready

Reset engine check light after driving with gas cap off?

It should reset itself within a short period of time. If not, disconnect the negative battery cable for approx 20 min. This will clear the computer memory. Be advised, if you need a smog test in the near future you will have to complete a bunch of drive cycles before the "readiness monitors" are a go.

Remove battery. took it to smog fail because the monitors were not set

If the check engine light was on before you disconnected the battery you will need to address that issue before the monitors will reset. If there was no check engine light driving a combination of city and freeway for a day should reset all monitors
