HOW FAR DO YOU HAVE TO DRIVE THIS CAR TO RESET THE MONITORS AFTER BEING RESET AFTER DOING A REPAIR

2005 Saturn Vue • 200,000 miles

I replaced the #5 coil and reset the light and they when I went to get the emission sticker it failed the man said I would have to drive it maybe 30 miles, I have driven the car 150 miles and still not been reset

Its not how far, the cycle is a very specific way of driving a car under certain conditions to run the monitors. Everyday driving may never run a monitor depending on your driving habits. Thats why shops charge for this service to get the monitors to run.

So I will have to take to a shop so they can drive the car?

That is my suggestion as they are familiar with the conditions of driving it.
