    Ive had it scanned by 3 mechanics, theirs no codes, also all systems are coming up normal. Ive been told I just need to drive it. I put almost 400 miles on it , performed the drive cycle 2 times and I still have 3 tests not being performed. Question , is it normal to lock the trunk with key and have Door locks lock at the same time..locks dont lock with key at drivers door. Im wonder if theirs a short and if so, if thats whats causing 3 obd2 tests not to perform . I need to have at least one of the three test to perform in dorder to pass smog.What can I do.?.
