SOURCE: How far to drive for drive cycle?

I dont think it matters how far you drive as long as it gets completly warmed up and then gets completly cooled down.
It sounds like you already know this but But for other readers benifit I will add that there are some details that can make the process quicker.
this only pertains to 1996 on up vehicles that the check engine light is NOT illuminated.
When preparing for emissions tests after unhooking your battery, there are readyness tests that have to be completed before your truck is ready to be tested.

  • Basicly in a nut shell, all they do at the emission station is to make sure that your check engine light is not coming on because of any issue.
The way they check this is observe the light before and after they start up your vehicle. If it goes out after starting then your good.
except for one thing, they hook up to your trucks computer and see if your computer has been reset. if so they confirm that your truck has ran its readyness tests.
Thus if there were any problems then the light would be on.
Then it dosnt pass
  • If your readyness tests are not complete and your light is off, then they will send you away and tell you to drive your truck for a few days and then come back. Hopefully then the readyness tests will be done
You can expodite the process by driving in certian patterns for different tests.
The pattern that I have found that works the best to complete the most tests, is
  • Start your truck and let it warm up completely,
  • then drive the truck at a steady speed at 40 to 50 mph for 5 miles
  • coast down to 30 then back up to 50
  • then coast down to 30
  • When its convenient stop and let the truck idle for two minutes,
  • Then turn it off for at least 5 seconds. thats it.
Where I live there is traffic and it is very difficult to find a time or place to drive it at these speeds for that far.So I just follow it the best I can.
I use this dirve pattern all the time and 90% of the time It will run the tests it needs to pass.
If you havent unhooked your battery or reset your computer recently, and your check engine light is not on then you dont have to worry about any of this information, your car should pass emissions test.

SOURCE: how do I complete the computer diagnostics drive

alot of times when the monitors dont set its because you may have a defective coolant temp sensor or air temp sensor. Some monitors will not run if the sensors never get between 10 degrees of each other and both being under 160 degrees.
The way to check is to use a data scanner. After sitting overnight they should both be about the same temp. Or if you have a data scanner you can force the temp by heating or iceing them to get the desired results before starting the vehicle.
If you dont look at the data before you start the car you will never know if thier faulty

What is the drive cycle for a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder?

What is not ready?

One of the 8 Emission Monitors?

Drive cycles have to be looked up in factory manuals
& done by a repair shop, NOT the vehicle owner

Seldom do you need to do a drive cycle

If a drive cycle is done for a reason, there is no driving a vehicle
hundreds of miles, as you hear about

I would guess you have an Emissions Failure

Exhaust Converter
Oxygen Sensors
Cylinder Misfires
Egr Issue
Evap System

What ever codes you have, will tell you the system to component test

Need scan tool to look at data,thus a repair shop

Hyundai accent computer reset cycle

Sounds like the sensor problem is preventing the cycle from completing. Everything has to work correctly for 50-100 miles before the cycle finishes.
You'll need to get the code definitions and have the components checked out.

Cars do have a drive cycle to clear up a fault. It more less ensures the issue has been corrected after a certain drive cycle. Some issues have to cycled for 500 miles.

My 1996 Nissan Altima has had the Oxygen sensors and EGR valve replaced. It needs to pass emmissions test but evan after driving it fo rover 500 miles the The ECM will not reset eventhoughtthe fault codes...

Putting miles on them wont reset the computer. It is how many times you cycle the key on and off. And they will only reset if the problem was fixed. I don't know how many times yours has to be cycled, but some vehicles are up to 100 times. Hope this helps.
