My 05 ford focus Zx3 2.0L I went to smog for twice still don't passed the smog test the reader said cat is not ready evap is not ready 2 air is not ready what I have to do

Did you disconnect the battery recently? Or have the car worked on to correct a check engine light problem? And they reset the codes?

When this happens (loss of all power or code reset), the computer will run all its tests on all systems, and set a 'ready' condition when the tests are passed. Some tests require multiple 'drive cycles' or specific conditions (less than full tank of gas but more than 1/4 tank) to complete the test. Until all (or a specific number - some non-critical tests may be exempted) tests are 'ready', the car will not be passed. The assumption being that until a test is successfully completed, the computer may discover a problem with a system, one that would fail the smog test.

If you're confident that all problems have been fixed, you need to run through enough drive cycles so the computer can complete all required tests. Most ODBII code readers can also read the readiness of the systems. And most parts stores will read your codes for you (and system status) or let you borrow a reader.

After disconnecting my battery to change my starter, I went to get a smog. It was rejected. What drive cycle do I need to clear the system? Vehicle is 2005 Saturn Vue. 4 cyl,two whl drive, 5 spd man.

It should not take a very long drive cycle for the PCM to recover a full relearn. What part of the smog failed? CO? CO2? You may need a scan tool connected to monitor sensor activity to find out what is causing the emissions to fail

2004 PT Cruiser Turbo won't pass smog test because computer monitors haven't completely reset after battery failure. It's been driven 235 miles and only 2 monitors remain unset (oxygen and

The system has to see a wide range of conditions before a smog test can be done. On most brands you have to drive at least 50 miles, at various speeds including stop and go, let it idle for 5 - 10 minutes, and run at freeway speed for at least 25 miles. It also has to reach normal operating temp of 195 degrees.

Took Tahoe for a Smog test and test station won't accept car because the computer hasn't reset to 10, only 8 points and was told to drive the car around until it completes the cycle, then bring it back....

Some monitors in the computer may need 500 miles of different driving styles and speeds before they are happy and many "start from cold" driving cycles.
DON'T RESET anything and DO NOT let the battery go dead or you will have to start over.
