1996 Buick Electra 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive 119600 miles

I replaced the map sensor. On this model, how long before the new sensor " resets" so I can have the emission test required by my county. I don't want an error code as it would not pass the test. How many miles must I drive before it resets?

PS: I am on a fixed income and cannot donate any $ at this time.

It would take 100 starts for it to clear on it's own. You will have to get the code cleared and then it could take a couple hundred miles of driving for all the monitors to reset.
