Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Are they saying what systems arnt being recognized yet?

Evidently they put a new battery in before we bo't it and the smog place says we should drive it 200 miles . that is not working and we are out of time.
Oldsmobile Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

yeah sometimes you have to drive it even farther to reset the monitors on the system, a steady 60 mph is a good speed to do this
