SOURCE: failed emission test due to not complete code

I fixed my own problem. Since the computer could not reset, I
decided to disconnect the battery. After two days, the computer
corrected itself..

If your engine light is coming on, then there is a code somewhere in the computer,it may be a pending code.Its possible your computer is bad. Have your computer tested.

SOURCE: My Saturn did not pass emissions inspection -the

The P0410 code refers to the emissions system. The AIR pump puts air to the exhaust to lower emissions. It takes in outside air and pumps it through two one-way check valves into each bank of the exhaust.

About 90% of the time that this code is set, the one-way check valves have worn out or failed and allow water (which occurs naturally in the exhaust) back into the pump. In any cold climate, especially in climates with higher humidity, this water may be more excessive. The water partially fills the AIR pump, it can then freeze. When the PCM commands the pump on, if the pump is frozen it cannot turn, thus overloading the circuit and "popping" the fuse.

Your vehicle is equipped with an OBD II computer AND a link to connect OBD II computer to a Smog Check Analyzer or Data Scan Tool (available
at most auto part stores).There are two types of codes, bad codes and good codes. The good codes are the "Readiness Flags". These Readiness Flags
indicate that certain emissions systems which the OBD II computer has been monitoring have PASSED the test, indicating that those systems are
working properly. Then there are the bad codes. The bad codes are actual "Trouble Code". These codes indicate that the OBD II computer
has detected a problem with in the emissions system. The Trouble Code will specifically indicate the component and problem which was found.
Newer vehicle's have very complex codes in the thousands.
"Readiness Flags" do not cause the "Check Engine" light to illuminate, but may cause a vehicle to fail the smog test.
In order to set all the proper "Readiness Flags" the OBDII system must complete at least one drive cycle (in some cases
two or three). A drive cycle is a sequence of internal tests which the OBDII computer runs while your vehicle is being driven. This insures
all emissions systems are functioning properly. Only then will your vehicle pass the smog inspection. A drive cycle usually requires one
week of driving.

Failed emissions test


First step is to have the code or codes read.If the "check engine light" is on there will be a reason and should be a code or codes to be read.Once you have the codes,you can determine the correction needed to get that "check engine light" out and a valid emissions test completed.Get back to us with the codes found.

Engine Check light


Take it to autozone or another place like it and have them read the codes and tell us what they are.

What does the 2004 XG-350 check engine light indicate?


The check engine light is a warning light that comes on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem. Also called the "malfunction indicator lamp" (MIL) or "Service Engine soon". It can come on for any of hundreds of different causes from any of the systems that the computer monitors. Some are very important and some not as serious.



Your first step is to have the computer scanned to retrieve the trouble codes that were set when the check engine light came on. Those codes will get you pointed in the right direction to find your problem. With a 1996 or newer and some 95 cars and you have an AutoZone in your area, they will read them for free.

'check' light keeps coming on


Why my Check Engine/Service Engines Soon light comes on?
The engine computer or PCM/ECM
All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle powertrain (the engine and transmission). The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it's not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That's why today's cars have much more electronics than in early days - there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.
The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at. To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundreds) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.

Check engine light came on, dealer says its the throttle chamber. I have a 2003 Nissan Altima


Disconnecting the battery might reset the check engine light on some cars. However, instead of doing so, I'd recommend to bring your car to a dealer or a mechanic for proper diagnostic, and here is why:
- not all cars will clear the code after disconnecting the battery
- often, the problem may be actually covered by the warranty and repaired free of charge by your dealer. For example, if you have the code P0420 - Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold it's very possible that your catalytic converter is still covered by the original emission warranty and might be replaced free of charge (would cost you close to $1000 otherwise).
- some problems, if not repaired in time may cause a serious damage and more costly repair.
- disconnecting the battery will cause basic settings of the vehicle's computer to be erased (e.g. idle settings, fuel trim settings, transmission shift points, etc.)
- the Readiness code will be erased, which may prevent your car from completing an emissions test. (Readiness code is an indication that certain emission control components of your car have been self-tested)
- the radio, if code-protected, may be locked after disconnecting the battery
- the "check engine" light will come back anyway if the problem still persists.
This can also be related to a coolant flush. Also check that all the car's fluid levels are correct. Thank you, Have a nice day...!

Service engine light on constantly. what to look for to fix


Ken,
You will want to take your car to your local Auto Zone or Advance auto and ask them to scan the car for trouble codes. They will do it for you at no charge and you will see what is causing the the service engine light to come on. You can write the codes down and respond back so we can start diagnosing.
Let me know what the codes are, good luck.
Regards,

Check engine light just came on. 65k miles I had service last weed radiator flush and oil change


Hi

This is unlikely to be related to a simple coolant flush or oil change. Obviously you should check that all your fluid levels are correct as a first step in the process. It is possible that a connection to a sensor on the engine has been disturbed during this work which can then set off the EML so check all visible electrical connections on the engine first.

If there is nothing evident from this check you need to have the car put on a scanner at a dealers to identify the trouble codes stored in the cars ECU. The stored codes will point towards a diagnoses. Often a bad sensor is the cause of a problem such as this.

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.
