Emission rediness codes on after repair & clear

I have driven the vehicle, 2001 Dodge Dakota, 4/7L V8 engine, but rediness monitors don't reset to ready. What driving procedure is necessary to get rediness monitors to go "ready"?

    I have tried this in the past and it never does anything to the rediness codes. My code scout says it requires manufacturer specific driving cycles to resey/ready the emission monitor indicators.

  • rjhearn Feb 26, 2009

    Your solution is for diagnostic problem codes which can be reset by removing the battery or in my case I have a CodeScout diagnostic tool that I used to clear the original evaporative emission code. After doing that there is a manufacturer/model specific procedure for driving the car that will, if the repair has been done correctly, make ready the oxygen sensor, sensor heater and catalyst monitors. They only go out after driving per manufacturer recommendations. That recommendation is what I am looking for.



    Sorry, I didn't mean to give you a bad rating but we all can't be right all the time.

Unhook the battery for about ten minutes... make sure you have the code for the radio (if required)

    that's possible... but it will not reset unless the problem is fixed... good luck with that as you have decided to give me a lousy rating

    no perhaps you are right but basically we are all volunteers on this site... if you had left it unrated and pointed out that wasn't the way this particular vehicle codes are reset... i would have spent the additonal time to look at the service manual for your vehicle.... good luck i hope you find a solution

2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start


Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

What does the code p1734,p0780 mean and how do i slove it


P0780 Automatic Transaxle Malfunction (With Automatic ...


























P0780 Automatic Transaxle Malfunction - With Automatic Transmission





Possible Causes


Setting Conditions







  • Mechanical problems present in the automatic transmission can cause this code to set. See the note below.


  • Refer to the repair instructions in a transmission repair manual or the information in other electronic media to repair this code.




Engine running; vehicle driven at Cruise speed, and the PCM detected a problem in the mechanical operation of the automatic transmission. Note: This trouble code (P0780) sets with along with several TCM related trouble codes.he





Malfunction Indicator Lamp

The Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) alerts the driver that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has detected an OBD II emission-related component or system fault. When this type of malfunction occurs, an OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set by the PCM. The MIL is located on the instrument cluster and is labeled CHECK ENGINE, SERVICE ENGINE SOON, or is identified with an ISO standard engine symbol (i.e., a picture of an engine).

Bulb Test

Each time the ignition switch is turned to the "on" position, the MIL indicator is illuminated for about 3 seconds (which is a function of the PCM).

Readiness Codes

To check if the Readiness Codes are set to complete, turn the ignition switch "on", but do not start the engine. The MIL will come "on" for 15-20 seconds. If it then goes "off", the Readiness Codes are set to complete, If it flashes five times, one or more of the Readiness Codes are not set to complete. To set Readiness Codes from incomplete to complete, perform the drive cycle procedure for the appropriate code.

MIL Lamp-On Message

Each time the PCM detects an Emissions related fault, the MIL is illuminated to inform the driver that the vehicle needs to be taken in for service.




COMPONENT MONITOR DRIVE CYCLE INSTRUCTIONS



  • Do not turn off the ignition switch during the test procedure.


  • All Onboard Diagnostic Monitors are cleared when the battery is disconnected or when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is cleared with the Scan Tool.


  • This drive cycle can be used to determine if the Readiness code for this Monitor will run and complete, and if the MIL will remain off after the vehicle is driven.


  • Operating Ranges: When a range of values is provided, try to operate the vehicle in the middle of the range. For example, if the vehicle speed range calls for 45-55 mph, drive the vehicle as close as possible to 50 mph. If the engine speed should be 1,000-2,000 rpm, try to operate the engine at 1,500 rpm.


  • Scan Tool Data: There are certain Parameter Identification (PID) values that must be within range before this Monitor will "run". It can be helpful to pull up those PID items on the Scan Tool so an assistant can view them during testing.


  • The Readiness code for this Monitor defaults to "continuous" or "monitoring" because this Monitor runs continuously when the engine is cranking or running.




COMPONENT MONITOR PRETEST CONDITIONS



  • MIL is off.


  • No Emission related DTC's are present.




TEST PROCEDURE



  1. Connect the Scan Tool to the data link connector (DLC). Use the Scan Tool to clear any stored DTC's and to reset the OBD Monitors.


  2. Start the engine and allow it to run at idle speed for 15 seconds.


  3. Accelerate at part-throttle to 40 mph and maintain that speed for several minutes. Bring the vehicle to a stop, and then allow the engine to idle with the transmission in Drive (in Neutral for M/T) for 15 seconds.


  4. Then accelerate at moderate throttle to 50 mph and maintain that speed for 15 seconds. Bring the vehicle to a stop, and then accelerate to 40 mph and maintain that speed for 15 seconds. Bring the vehicle to a stop and allow the engine to idle for 15 seconds. Repeat this step at least 5 times.


  5. Check for any Pending codes in the Generic OBD II section of the Scan Tool. If no Pending codes are set, the Component Monitor test is complete. If any Pending codes are set, refer to the appropriate trouble code repair information to make the repair.
