Some Ford vehicles manufactured in 2004 - 2005 required harness replacement to make them compatible with emission testing equipment. A factory service bulletin (FSB) was issued for Fords but may have been expanded to include Mercury as well. You may have to have a Ford dealer check to determine whether your Mercury was modified.

SOURCE: Failed Emissions test. OBD

Rich:

The trick to setting all the monitors is:
Make sure you have more than 1/4 tank of fuel but no more than 3/4.
Clear codes then Do Not cycle key off. Start vehicle and drive,make sure you do at least 2 minutes of steady spead between 40-50 mph and at least 2 minutes at 50-65 mph, usually about a 20 to 25 mile drive will set them..
If you turn the ignition off before the monitors complete then EVAP will have to see a 6 hour cold soak before it will attempt to run again.

SOURCE: I failed emissions test. The HC and CO both failed. I was told by a family member that it sounds like the catalytic converter and I wanted to know how much that would cost or estimated cost to replace

Rich fuel mixture is leaking fuel injectors,failed oxygen sensors

Need clean air filter,new spark plugs

An Exhaust Converter is only good for 12 to 14 years max then
it has to go

This is a social web site we use as you do so prices are are over the internet less labor of coarse

I have a 2002 honda accord 4 cyl. that is reading on obd2 7 monitors ready ,1 inc egr , can anyone ell me what this means if it is not ready.


Whenever power is completely removed from a vehicle (disconnect the battery), active trouble codes are erased and all system monitors are reset. This is primarily to prevent 'turning off' the check engine light just before emissions inspection. Most states require that all monitors (or a specific number of them) be in a 'ready' status.
For the monitors to 'pass' checks and attain a 'ready' status, specific conditions must be met, usually involving 'drive cycles'. Some system monitors will reset very quickly - one drive cycle or less. Some take longer - more drive cycles or other conditions (usually the evaporative emission cycle requires fuel be between 1/4 and 3/4 of a tank of fuel).
If your car recently had the battery disconnected or replaced, you may have to drive it a few more times to get all monitors into a 'ready' status. If the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) monitor does not reset, check with a dealer or a good garage on what parameters must be met to reset this monitor.

2002 Hyundai Elantra that says my on board computer is not ready to be tested. Emission results are: readiness- fail, monitor comprehensive- not ready, monitor EVAP not ready,monitor O2 not ready.


Did you recently clear the trouble codes or disconnect the battery? Once all codes are cleared, the computer will not display systems 'ready' until they go through an evaluation cycle. Some of the systems require a certain number of drive cycles before they will display 'ready'. A drive cycle is usually starting the engine from a cold start (based on coolant temperature) and driving until certain conditions are met. I don't know what the requirements are for your car, but my 2003 pickup truck requires more than 10 drive cycles before it will make the O2 sensors and evaporative emissions 'ready'. Most states only require that a certain number of systems are showing 'ready' to pass emissions certification.

My 2001 x5 evap & catalyst report not ready, I reset my MAF OBDII Code ~70 miles before checking it, but...


if you had reset the code[ or had a dead battery]you just cleared and reset all the vehicles evap / emissions systems it now has to recycle through to reset you wont have a check engine or mil unless computer finds a fault and on most vehicles it can be about 125 miles and usually the last to reset are the evap and the catalytic converter drive around and at around 125 mark go to an auto store and have vehicle scanned most offer this service for free or if you have one check your system for ready if not keep driving some more most states give you 10 days to retry so use that time to rack up miles -- and dont reset or clear codes before an inspection

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.

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

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

EMISSIONS INSPECTION FAILED


This just means that the OBD was reset recently and the car hasnt been driven enough for readings to be given by the OBDII. Just drive the car a while, and then all should be READY. After any OBDII reset, the car must go through a certain number of "Drive Cycles" before the OBDII will emit any readings. Refer to the manufacturer to find out exactly how many, and how to complete them.
