its the counter that matters, if you go to check the faults and it says 1
start since erased, that means eveything in the PCM is being cleared on
key on!! which means that all OBD2 monitors and fault codes are cleared.
and it will show a pending state for the monitors. This could cause a
failed IM test in certain areas.
If the is a fault 12 and it shows the counts, There is is functioning
correctly. and the counter is not 50, but 255 starts
