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

SOURCE: 92 Nissan Pathfinder brake lights stuck on

Change the brake light switch on the brake pedal arm. Go down to the parts store and ask for a new brake liight switch for your Pathfinder and look up under the dash where the brake pedal arm goes and you will see the switch. You will need to unplug the wires to your old one and disconnect it and install the new one the same way. It is pretty much self adjusting once the brake pedal is released. If the brake light does not go out adjust the switch pin to be longer so it will depress when the pedal is released

SOURCE: speedo not working on nissan pathfinder

check the speed sensor either at the transmission or on the front wheel axle. You have to remove the front wheel , rotor until you get down to the shaft. The speed sensor is right there on the passenger side of your car.

SOURCE: how do i do the drive cycle on a 1997 nissan

The following drive cycle can be used as a guide to assist with re-setting monitors when a vehicle specific drive cycle cannot be located. This OBDII drive cycle begins with a cold start (coolant temperature below 122 degrees F and the coolant and air temperature sensors within 11 degrees of one another). This condition can be achieved by allowing the vehicle to "sit" overnight, and then by beginning the drive cycle the next day. Most drive cycles will be difficult to follow exactly under normal driving conditions, so the driver should exercise caution, road safety, and courtesy to others.

  1. . Start the engine. Idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defroster on.
  2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle.
  3. Hold at a steady speed of 55 mph for three minutes.
  4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch.
  5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at ¾ throttle.
  6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.
  7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking.

How long does it take for the computer to reset


You can either reset / erase the code after replacing the oxygen sensor or go through a few "drive cycles" and it will reset itself. Can't remember off the top of my head how the cycles are defined. Alternatively get your hands on an OBDII reader and reset the code.

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.

Hello,
When the MAF on most vehicles reach a point of preventing the engine from starting, you can usually just unplug it and the engine will start. If that doesn't work-
You may want to try having the O2 sensor, ( Oxygen sensor ), checked. It works with other components of the emission system and can cause similar symptoms as the MAF, including preventing the engine from starting.

The clock on my Nissan Pathfinder is acting funny. It goes on and off during normal driving. If I tap on it, it lights up. Help!


That is a typical problem with many late model import vehicles. The observations that the clock goes on and off sporadically and that tapping on it turns it on leads me to believe that the clock is going bad internally. I offer a very reasonable repair service for many late model imports. Check out www.autoclockrepair.com
