The following conditions must occur to complete a Trip and test all OBD II monitors and components including the Catalyst Efficiency Monitor:
-- The misfire, comprehensive component, and adaptive fuel monitors are checked continuously from engine warm-up and can complete any time.
-- The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) monitor test requires a series of idles and accelerations.
-- The heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) monitor requires a steady speed drive for approximately 1 minute at 30 to 40 mph.
-- The catalyst efficiency monitor requires a steady speed drive for 1 minute and 20 seconds beyond the HO2S monitor test at 40 to 65 mph.
If you cut engine off before test are completed then you must wait for a 6 hour cool down before monitors will run again.

1997 Nissan Truck didn't pass emission test, readiness monitor not ready


that usually means that someone either disconnected the battery or the computer was reset. You need to drive the vehicle for about at least 20 minutes at road speed so the computer can scan all modules.

Engine light has come on. problem was starter motor which was repaired & flee through wof. but light is still on, it is a nissan primera station wagon import from japan. does anyone know how to change the...


Your vehicle is equipped with an OBD II computer AND a link to connect OBD II computer to a Smog Check Analyzer or Data Scan Tool (available
at most auto part stores).There are two types of codes, bad codes and good codes. The good codes are the "Readiness Flags". These Readiness Flags
indicate that certain emissions systems which the OBD II computer has been monitoring have PASSED the test, indicating that those systems are
working properly. Then there are the bad codes. The bad codes are actual "Trouble Code". These codes indicate that the OBD II computer
has detected a problem with in the emissions system. The Trouble Code will specifically indicate the component and problem which was found.
Newer vehicle's have very complex codes in the thousands.
"Readiness Flags" do not cause the "Check Engine" light to illuminate, but may cause a vehicle to fail the smog test.
In order to set all the proper "Readiness Flags" the OBDII system must complete at least one drive cycle (in some cases
two or three). A drive cycle is a sequence of internal tests which the OBDII computer runs while your vehicle is being driven. This insures
all emissions systems are functioning properly. Only then will your vehicle pass the smog inspection. A drive cycle usually requires one
week of driving.

My 1996 nissan quest gxe wont even power solinoid or starter when i turn key.dash lights come on only im positive its the factory security alarm.how can i reset it


this alarm system is reset with the key being turned in the door, lock and unlock the driverside door and then see if it starts if not then do the same to the pass/side and see if it starts if it doesnt then you may have a bad starter, the best thing to do is check for power at the small wire on the starter if theres power to the small wire with the key in the crank postion and there should be power on small wire if there is then replace the starter, hope this helps.

Can't pass smog test because failure to complete all OBD test


Depends on your driving habits. Usually all the readiness codes will reset in 50-100 miles. I have seen extreme cases where they haven't reset after 1000 miles though.

Wont complete scan to pass emission test


When you rest your codes there is a series of tests your ECU has to go through before you can pass emissions. this is done some people can reset the code and go before its sets the code again. on the 96 you can have 2 tests not complete for it to pass. basicly you have to drive the car a couple days for the tests to pass.

check the readiness tests wait until only 2 have not passed. then you should be good.so drive and check.
