You need to take it on the highway for literally 2-3 minutes cursing above 40mph. It's another test that gets run. This has to be after 7 minutes of the car being on.. any time before that, it won't even start the test.

This tests for emissions. If you have a leak in the gas tank.. even a small one that won't pressurize the system, it throws a code. If you pass, another one of those damn 'ready' things gets checked off he ECU for emissions testing. It's one of about 7-8.
