    yes driving it will reset monitors but that needs to be done after repairs are made. it may take up to 300 miles at times

    If you didnt fix anything then it wont reset. if someone fixed something and didnt have a scanner to clear the codes you can disconnect the battery terminals. hold them together for short time and reconnect. With no repairs this will do you no good. what was the codes?
