Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
MY 99 FORD TAURUS HAS PASSED THE EMISSIONS TEST COUNTLESS TIMES, EXCEPT FOR THIS YEAR, FOR SOME REASON, IT KEEPS GETTING REJECTED, AND IVE HAD IT. IVE TRIED DRAINING THE BATTERY OVERNIGHT, IVE TRIED STALLING IT, IVE DRIVEN IT COUNTLESS TIMES ON THE FREEWAY FOR TWO WEEKS BEFORE GETTING IT TESTED AGAIN, AND IT STILL IS BEING REJECTED. WHAT DO I DO?? SOMEONE BE A HERO!!
If it is not passing because monitor is not completed and there are no trouble codes.
Start from cold engine with no more than 3/4 tank of fuel and more than 1/4. Drive it about 25 miles with at least 2 minutes of steady speeds between 35-45 mph and also the same at 50-65 mph.Then make several stop and goes,pausing about 20-30 sec when stopped.
If you turn the engine off before the monitors complete you must go thru a 6 hour cool down cycle before it will try and complete again. Then stop by an Autozone or some place that checks codes for free and have them check it and make sure no codes are stored in memory and the P1000 code has cleared. If it has cleared you should be good to go then. Plus this will make sure that it is not an issue with their inspection machine linking up with your vehicle. The only other problem it may be is if you are loosing the keep alive memory when you shut down your vehicle.That would be fuse 19 (15amp) in the underhood fuse panel.
