2009 chrysler 300c timing chain recall, does this reset the computer after repair is done? (I need smog test soon after)

My car has 10000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Yes this would reset the computer monitors for your smog test to pass. You should drive the vehicle for at least a week or more driving in all types of situations. Have a mechanic scan the computer to see if all the monitors passed without clearing them again so you can go pass the test.
