Default CANT PASS SMOG BECAUSE OF DRIVE CYCLE?!?!

well my sisters car is an 02 civic ex coupe and weve had problems with it turning itself off randomly and we had to replace her battery just because it was old and warn out and we took it to get it smogged and it failed because they said it needs a drive cycle done to it?? so she looked up all the drive cycles and the dealership printed them out for her and seh tried them NUMEROUS times and they didnt work...... so is there a way the dealership can just like trip her ecu so it says a drive cycle was performed?? i dont see why anyone would haveto do that after they change their battery??

and also we were thinking about replacing her ecu because we're thinking that might be the cutout issue with her car turning off...but what ecu does she have? its an automatic by the way

thanks for the help

well anytime you disconnect the battery or clear the cel it will restet your monitors and they willhave to reset themselves. it usually takes a few drive cycles anywhere from 50-100 mile of drivin. i would check your backup fuse and make sure its good. no sure which one it is. if its bad monitpr will never set.

the dealer cant do anything other than drive it and get the monitor to pass and also check the back up fuse. there a tool you can buy it cost about 80 buck that plugs into the dlc and will beep when monitor are set
