Why do i get OBD/READINESS, Not ready?


Alan, I f you have had battery disconnected or had some one erase codes recently, the computer has to go through what is known as a drive cycle to complete all monitors cycling, some vehicles complete cycle in 10 miles, where as some could take 100 miles or more.
My Toyota EVAP readiness state will not cycle in cold weather and takes thousands of miles before it gets to readiness state.
I think some shops can force systems to run if they have a good scan tool.

1999 Mazda B2500 won't pass inspection


Generally speaking, the not ready issue means the truck has not been driven enough since the battery was disconnected or the codes were cleared to have a new history. The cycle drive needs to include about 50-100 miles of both city and highway driving with the engine at normal operating temp. The distance does not have to be done in one trip.

I have a 2003 Toyota Camry XLE. The battery died with the check engine light on. We took it in to get the smog certification (California) and the tech said that the computer was not reset. He advised us to...


The vehicle owner does not do drive
cycles,a repair shop should do that

Do you even know what the drive cycle
requirement was?

Have you not considered a repair shop
& some testing, to find out about the dead
battery & check engine light issue?

You don't go to inspection when you know
you have problems, nor until you look at scan
tool data, to see that all the monitors have run
& are clear,just waste your time at inspection

I need to turn the Check engine light off, due to passenger/front catalytic converter 2005 nissan xterra


You still fail your state inspection if you turn off the check engine light. So Im sorry to say, that your gonna have to wait untill your new cat gets installed. After its installed you have a few options for turning off the check engine light.
-You can disconnect your battery for a little bit.
-You can take it to pretty much any mainstream auto parts store and they will clear it for free.
Either way you have to complete what is called "a drive cycle" to be able to pass your vehicle inspection.

DRIVE CYCLE
Once problem is fix you complete a drive cycle. Every vehicle is different so this is a general guide.
-There are a certain number of times your vehicle has to be started.
-There is a certain amount of time you have to be driving at different speeds
-There are sometimes a certain millage that has to be reached (ie. drive 75 miles)
If you just drive as you normally do for 100miles (not in one trip) your sure to have reset all the sensers that the state inspection equipment check.

SO IN SHORT
Get the new catyletic convertor installed
Get you 'check engine light' cleared for free at an auto parts store
Drive your car normally for about 100 miles
Get your vehicle state inspection

They are refering to the Drive Cycle not being completed. There are 7 monitors that have to complete in order for them to have a passing signal where the Smog Tech / Smog Machine can say its a pass in that part of the test.

This is what you need to do hope it helps out.

Cold Start
  • The barometric pressure (BARO) is more than 72 kPa .
  • The engine coolant temperature (ECT) is below (84°F ).
  • The intake air temperature (IAT) is below(84°F ).
  • The difference between the IAT and the ECT is(13°F ) or less.
  • The battery voltage is between 9.0-16.0 volts .
  • The fuel level is between 1/4 and 3/4.
The DRIVE CYCLE:

Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) Complete System Set Procedure - Steps 1-4 155390324
Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) Complete System Set Procedure - Steps 5-7 159960079 READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH 1ST BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT IT, SO YOU KNOW HOW TO START AND WHERE YOU NEED TO DRIVE THE CAR TO HAVE ALL THE MONITORS RESET.

If you have more questions let me know. Good Luck.

Passing inspection


it is called a drive cycle self test, this gives the computer a chance to test itself and see if all problems have been corrected and all systems are functioning properly, if the test is not done the computer will read "not ready" and u fail smog. this test can take up to a week to complete.
