After resetting the code How many miles until you know it's "cleared"

After you reset the code (removing the negative battery terminal for a half hour) How many miles do you need to go to know if it is "cleared" I have the code 43 and I keep trying everything but replacing the valve springs, so I am just curious as to how any miles I need to goo before I can get it inspected, without them knowing the "code was reset"

Just want to say without WF I would be in the dark ...
Thanks in advance my Wrangler Forum'ers

I dunno exactly but to not have a recently cleared code, it needs something like 40 fully warmed up engine cycles. And you only need to disco the battery for 2-3 minutes to clear the codes.

That wouldn't be enough to pass smog in California after clearing the codes, I'd be surprised if just driving a single 50 mile trip would be enough in a Nissan.

I just bought a cheapo scanner off of amazon for ~$15 to read/clear codes.

Disco-ing the battery will not reset the codes. The only way to clear a code is with a "Code Reader." Disco-ing the battery only make you have to "Reteach," the ECM to recognize/read all the sensors, by driving approx, 60 miles.
