I think igot your ?,u have to put it through emissions, just before ugo put ahalf tank of the highest octane gas in a near empty tank and run it on the open hwy to get it good and warm for about a half hour, drive to test center just before u get their stop turn engine off,remove both battery cables for 1min. reinstall, go stright to test center try to do it so u do'nt have to wait in line ! some times this works! if not most states will give u tags and restrict them for 1 mo. so u can repair the problem, when u do, take certificate to ur DMVand they will give u a new sticker, call them and see if they have that waver, my state does. good luck.

2002 Hyundai Elantra that says my on board computer is not ready to be tested. Emission results are: readiness- fail, monitor comprehensive- not ready, monitor EVAP not ready,monitor O2 not ready.


Did you recently clear the trouble codes or disconnect the battery? Once all codes are cleared, the computer will not display systems 'ready' until they go through an evaluation cycle. Some of the systems require a certain number of drive cycles before they will display 'ready'. A drive cycle is usually starting the engine from a cold start (based on coolant temperature) and driving until certain conditions are met. I don't know what the requirements are for your car, but my 2003 pickup truck requires more than 10 drive cycles before it will make the O2 sensors and evaporative emissions 'ready'. Most states only require that a certain number of systems are showing 'ready' to pass emissions certification.

What is code po453 on my 99 chevy suburb mean??with engine light on...???


code p0453 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) pressure sensor-- high out put === causes wiring short to positive--- EVAP pressure sensor--- ECM
I would change the sensor unless you have been messing with the wires.

96 nissan sentra has no stored codes,but computer says not ready for testing when i take it to test station


You have to drive the car at least 50 miles or more after you have had the computer cleared out. The computer has 3 or 5 monitors that keep track of the emission and fuel system. You may have to drive it even further but the best way to find out the problem is. is to find a shop that has a computer that can check out the system to see why it does not get ready. usually it is a o2 sensor but you need a scope that monitors each sensor.

On-board computer not ready for emission inspection 02 ford taurus. replaced battery 1 month ago


This is the biggest flaw in emissions testing. It takes 4 tanks of fuel and 1000 miles of wasteful driving to reset the computer on the FORD TAURUS (I've got a 2000). So much for pollution control!

Have 96 seville service emission system is displaying,


Turn your key to the On position ( don't start it ) now, on your heat/air panel, press and hold the OFF and the WARMER (red) buttons at the same time for about 8sec. You will see your dash light up with every segment lit, you can let go when it starts. Then you computer will run its diagnostic check for error codes. Have a pen and paper ready to copy them down. As a guess, I bet it's going to throw a O2 sensor code. Let me know the codes. After that just turn your key off and your done with that portion.

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.
