SOURCE: I can't get an inspection sticker for my car

Every time you reset the light or disconnect the battery it completely resets the system and it has to go through EVERY test again. The O2, EVAP, and Cat tests are generally the LAST THREE tests that are tested. You're not doing yourself any favors here.

Essentially what these readiness monitors are is the computer's notation that his has run the self diagnostics on each system and that the results feel into the expected results. If it is outside the expected results the computer will generally try to run the test multiple times before setting a DTC and turning on the Check Engine Light. It cannot set the status to "Ready" until it has a successful test within expected results; sometimes multiple successful tests. Sometimes, the tests need to run at different speeds - so the vehicle has to be driven not only at freeway speeds, but also city speeds for the tests to complete properly.

The O2 test MUST complete before the Catalyst test can run. The EVAP test generally requires that you have your fuel level at between 1/4 and 3/4 and that the vehicle sit undisturbed after being driven for a period of time for no less than 8 hours in order to run the EVAP test.

The same can be said for the O2 test sometimes because the computer needs to test the O2 sensors reaction to heating up and cooling down. Eventually they will all complete - unless there is an issue. I have seen where a component was in the process of going out and the computer was getting both GOOD and BAD results when running the tests. As a result it wouldn't set ready status because it wasn't getting the concurrent GOOD test results.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
It is suggested you take it for a few runs. 25kms. atleast. After that, you can remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for atleast 5mins. before reconnecting.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Evap and cat will not clear on 97 merc mountaineer 5.0 need it to clear to pass emissions past due on plates hehp


You will need to do a smoke test to find evap leak. Alot of times it is just the gas cap. Cheap enough to try and it probably needs one anyway. The cat is most likely a oxygen sensor. What are the codes.if you dont drive any long distances they can take a long time to reset. If this is the case google the drive cycle for your vehicle. You have to do the drive cycle EXACTLY as it says or it will not work.

My 05 ford focus Zx3 2.0L I went to smog for twice still don't passed the smog test the reader said cat is not ready evap is not ready 2 air is not ready what I have to do


Did you disconnect the battery recently? Or have the car worked on to correct a check engine light problem? And they reset the codes?

When this happens (loss of all power or code reset), the computer will run all its tests on all systems, and set a 'ready' condition when the tests are passed. Some tests require multiple 'drive cycles' or specific conditions (less than full tank of gas but more than 1/4 tank) to complete the test. Until all (or a specific number - some non-critical tests may be exempted) tests are 'ready', the car will not be passed. The assumption being that until a test is successfully completed, the computer may discover a problem with a system, one that would fail the smog test.

If you're confident that all problems have been fixed, you need to run through enough drive cycles so the computer can complete all required tests. Most ODBII code readers can also read the readiness of the systems. And most parts stores will read your codes for you (and system status) or let you borrow a reader.

2010 Kia Forte ex die on highway will not start said engine said nothing does anyone no what this means cat evap Oz's hrt egr


Instead of Oz's hrt egr, the computer is referring to the O2 heater, and your Catalytic converter is Overheating because of the resulting rich mixture, this triggers an automatic shutdown or limp home mode for your engine. You need to get your trouble codes read, so you know which O2 sensor is bad.

What is the drive cycle computer rest for 2010 corolla


drive cycle, why not just forget that. I do. (mostly)
why>?
what do I do, i reset the PCM with my $10 scan tool
when dont, all monitors are now reset, ALL !

drive cycles to finish off all monitors? (a goal for say smog testing)

that is easy most clear fast. running fast.
but not EVAP, can take up to 30min but
if fuel tank is fuel, it never completes EVAP until 1/4 lower, 3/4 full and less.
EGR tests? can be easy if you drive fast, and then coast to a stop
both tests cleared. (sans complete)
monitors are (no appliclable, not ready or complete)
to do smog, all must be complete and no DTCs. (rare exceptions)

the drive cycle means number of times it takes to set a code for one test monitor or clear one.
some newer cars take 2 drives to set them.
and is important, the FSM covers this.
why not post symptoms or reasons for asking.

just curious?, then read the ASE book on OBD2 technology.

How many miles do i need to drive before my buick lesabre reset itself


Unfortunately it is not a certain amount of time or miles that the car needs to be driven.

There are several 'readiness monitors' that basically cover each emissions related system. For instance there is an EVAP monitor that checks the EVAP system and all of it's components under certain specific conditions (No VSS, TPS, O2 sensor, IAT, MAP, Fuel trim, Injector ciruit, EGR pintle position, ECT, or MAF sensor DTC codes set; Start up engine temp 40F-86F; gas tank between 15% and 85% full, Barometer above 75 kPa, system voltage 8V-16V).

So more information is needed as to what failed you the first time. What DTC code was triggered?

If the problem has been fixed right, the history codes will go away after 40 CONSECUTIVE drive cycles WITHOUT the problem re-occurring.

Good Luck.

Trying to get oxysens htr mon and catalyst mon to reset


Do you have a Scan tool to plug in to the cars CPU . You must reset from this scan tool and did you change the O2 Sensor with the battery hooked up. Try and take the Negative battery post wire off and wait for about 15 min then hook it up this might clear the CPU but the Scan Tool is the way to go because something else might be causing that light to stay on . Look for other issues you might have changed your sensors for no reason and make sure your gas cap is on and on right . Sounds like you need to rescan to check for other problems. need more info on what is going on and what you have done . Let me know I will try to help .

1997 Dodge Caravan ECM will not go Ready, no trouble codes


In order to set the monitor it the drive cycle 2 trip criteria that means you need to have a cold start up and reach operating temperature then another cold start up with a operating temperature reached and the drive for each one is part throttle hold for 2 miles and a decelration for the catalytic to get ready.when the cat is ready the evap runs.If you are loosing monitor at key off and everything reset you can see the referee let them smog it. The EGR and EVAP are almost impossilbe to get ready

O2 sensors keep failing and a evap leak code i put new gas cap did not cgehan ssomers11@gmail.com


Are you sure it's 02 sensors? Just because code says 02 sensors doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. Bad 02 sensor code can also indicate bad cat. converter. If 02 sensors read exact same reading before and after converter they will trigger OBC to "sensor fault" - they should be reading 2 different readings. (Pre CAT/POST cat) I'd suggest replacing cat converter before replacing sensors.
