I picked up a used 05 LGT wagon and when I took it in for a smog check for transfer of ownership, it failed the functional test. Apparently the car is not communicating with the computer. Everything else passed. The smog check guy asked me if I recently changed the battery, and told me to drive around 60 miles and take it back. The previous owner must've reset the battery. I've already driven the car for 60 miles prior to taking it to a smog check. Does anyone know what the drive cycle is for these cars? I thought it was 50 miles, but apparently not. Or anyone has other insight as to what could be causing the issue?
