You replaced them with new ? you need to take the battery cable off for 5 minutes then drive it so the computer can relearn the codes at 5 miles

How to reset computer when engine light is on so I can pass emissions on 2004 avalanche


Have you fixed whatever caused the code to come on? If not you will not be able to clear the code and pass emissions. Two reasons - 1. If the problem has not been repaired the check engine light will come back on. 2. Clearing the codes usual means that the OBDII monitors will also be cleared. There will be a code stored for this until the monitors are complete. If they see this co they know what you are up do and you do not pass.

O2 sensor


if your engine light is on and your gas cap is tight, and if you had the codes checked on the computer and it say's o2 sensor, this is an emissions problem, the parts are generally around 100.00 usd, and labor another 100.00 usd. but your car will not pass an emissions test until you do. However it will not ruin your engine, keep your window cracked just in case you are getting o2 in the cabin

Check engine light on; Gas milage went from 19 to 15, emission ba


YES!!, you had it tuned, it runs good, but gas mileage dropped, and check engine light is on,it sounds like the o2 sensors are slow or even dead, i would replace them for sure and that just might solve all your problems,good luck, hope this helps.

2002 kia optima wont pass emissions. check engine light was on, then turned off. how to reset computer


Reseting the cpu will clear the check engine code however it will not fix the problem that caused the check engine light to come on. The most common cause of failing emissions is the O2 Sensor. This sensor will trigger the check engine light when it is failing. The good news is that the Oxygen senser is pretty cheap and is mounted on your exhuast so it is fairly easy to replace yourself. I suggest replacing your O2 sensor the clear the computer by disconnecting the negative battery terminal and leave it disconnected for a few moments, hook up the negative again and it's all clear. Take your car back threw emmisions and you should be all set.

Hope this helps
