No, it will not pass the plug in test. They will see that the computer has not gone through enough driving cycles to have accuratly detected any problems.

However, I tried passing the smog check that way, and the guy working didn't really know what was going on. Since the station didn't have an AWD dyno to run the car on, they mearly checked it with an idle test.

Where do you live?
In some places (MD for example) if you inplug the battery the DMV will reject you and you have to come back for a retest.

If it happens again, they usually just pass you the second time instead of dealing with the problem.

Wisconsin.

9 times out of 10 it probably wouldn't happen the way it did. THe other guy wanted to send me to a different station with AWD stalls, the first guy said they should idle test it. Second guy agreed.
