First thing is to have someone to check fuse to see if its blown or missing... Second is to have it scanned ... Auto zone will do it for free...go from there if a fault is detected in the vehicles computer.

Some things to consider: Did you buy this truck used? You would be surprised how many vehicles have had one or more of their airbags removed or stolen and not properly replaced. Have a dealer or someone with a scan-tool to scan the code and find out what system is causing the fault. Some places will do the scan for no charge. (It only takes 5-10 minutes). Just be aware, if the technician "erases" the code you will have to put the car through a full driving cycle before you go back to inspection. (A full driving cycle can involve some very detailed driving, involving both highway and stop and go situations).

It must be a safety test, because the airbag has nothing to due with emissions. The proper way to make the light go out is have the air bag or SRS system repaired by a qualified service center.

Emissions light on


Have you hooked it up to a code reader or scan tool to pull codes out? Do that so you have a place to start your diagnose.

2004 Sebring failed the emissions testing


Probably not a cheap fix.
The car will not pass the test if the light is on during the test.
The light is on when the computer has a problem that will affect emissions or performance.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then fix the problem. Once the problem is fixed and the code is erased, the light should stay off.

I bought a 99 Voyager this week and it failed emmissions because the battery had been removed for a peroid of time and they said I needed to drive it for a while and bring it back. How many miles do I need...


What does "not ready" mean?

A service technician will turn off the dashboard "check engine" light after most repairs. This resets the vehicle's emission system components to "not ready". The status remains "not ready" until the vehicle's computer has had adequate time to review the repaired component. This happens after the vehicle is driven for a period of time established by the manufacturer.

If the vehicle's emissions system status is "not ready" when it is presented at the E-Check station during the initial test cycle, a tailpipe emissions test may be conducted. If the vehicle is transferred to another test type, the vehicle must remain on the different test track until the vehicle passes the emissions test or receives a waiver. For example, if the vehicle undergoes an OBD II test and fails, it cannot be downgraded to a tailpipe test on a re-test; the vehicle must pass the OBD II test.

For initial and subsequent tests, if a dashboard light is on when the vehicle is presented at the E-Check station, the vehicle will fail the test.


How can the vehicle status be made ready?

When a vehicle is driven through its normal drive cycle, the computer reviews the emission control
system and if the vehicle was properly repaired, the system resets itself to ready. A normal drive
cycle includes operation at both cruising speeds and in stop-and-go traffic for up to a couple
weeks. This process should be followed before bringing the vehicle in to be tested.

Wont complete scan to pass emission test


When you rest your codes there is a series of tests your ECU has to go through before you can pass emissions. this is done some people can reset the code and go before its sets the code again. on the 96 you can have 2 tests not complete for it to pass. basicly you have to drive the car a couple days for the tests to pass.

check the readiness tests wait until only 2 have not passed. then you should be good.so drive and check.

Have the sedona scanned at an AutoZone or similar place and ask for code. they will not tell you whats wrong with it but they will give you a code. You can go from there. You can come back and tell us what the code is .
