Try resetting it by disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for 5 mins. Or take it to a Franchised auto parts shop they do it for free using the testor

Can my car pass a smog test if i have cleared the codes temporarily ?


They can tell how long it has been since the codes were cleared,so you won't get away with it.If it is a code that will stay off for a day,by the least expensive or most likely part that will fix the code,and show the receipt to the emission test station.(Who knows,you might even get lucky and actually fix the issue).

2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start


Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

Need to study OBD 2 Systems on the internet & leave the vehicle
work to the pros

Help my car is codeing a p1633 won't pass test emission how do I fix this


The code should mean the memory voltage to the computer has been off at some point in time.
Sometimes it is a blown fuse in the box in the engine compartment. I think its a 10amp fuse but not sure.
Sometimes the code is set if the battery voltage drops below 11 volts such as when the car has been parked for several weeks or months.

Not enough data in computer for emissions testing


Has the battery been disconnected, or has it gone dead? Every time the battery is disconnected, all trouble codes are cleared, the check engine light is turned off, and all system monitors are reset. For the monitors to get back to a 'ready' status, the vehicle needs to go through one or more (sometimes quite a few) drive cycles.
When you go to the emission station, they check for codes, AND also check to see how many of your monitors are in a 'ready' status. (This keeps people from disconnecting the battery, and thus clearing any trouble codes, in order to pass emission tests).
If you have not disconnected your battery for a while, but the monitors are still not showing 'ready', you need to have a qualified shop check out your computer and other electronic systems.

Diagnostic code p0442


Hi, a P0442 is Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak). Start with the simplest thing first, make sure the gas cap is on tight. If it is, replace it with a new GM part (not a cheap aftermarket one). If that doesn't fix it, there are more steps listed here:
