Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Can't access on-board codes at all, '98 S10.

At emissions station, the tech could not get the tester to read anything at all, much like a previous post with a different vehicle. As if there is no power to the test plug-in. Runs great otherwise with no 'idiot lights' on at all at any time other than when turning on the key at first. Same result at auto parts store.

    I'll be able to confirm fully tomorrow, but that now makes sense. (Incidentally, I noticed when getting the vehicle that the cigarette lighter did not work.)What the Chevy dealer (it is also the emissions test station!)did not know or share, you have been most gracious to share, and so quickly! Thank you, and may God bless you... - Jim

I would recommend checking the fuse that controls the cigarette lighter.... i know it sounds strange, but most manufacturers link the power to the OBD test port to the same fuse as the cigarette lighter, mainly because it would be the least used accessory in the vehicle. Hope this helps.

Can a dealer in nyc pass inspection when the control arm is shaking


My state doesn't even do vehicle inspections, anymore. Hasn't done so in many years. If inspection places don't drive the vehicle and no check engine lite on and no codes. I don't know if they do sniffer tests? I thought inspections was mainly for emission issues? I guess you filled it up with oil? Your talking about engine oil? You didn't check anything on this vehicle before you bought it?
After reading your post, that whole vehicle has got me worried, not just the sticker. Take it to different mechanic have him give it the once over. See if it is safe to drive. I can't see anything from here. Safety is your responsibility.
I can't comment on the dealership. I don't know. I don't line in New York state, I don't know the laws?

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.

Does the 89 lincoln requirer emissions testing?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Every vehicle is required for emissions testing. I strongly suggest that you have the car conditioned before proceeding. By doing so you'll surely pass it.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Had the same problem two years ago, and now have it again. Apparently, there is a special tool used to pressurize the emissions so that you can get a reading. Had to go to an Acura dealership about 40 miles from my home to get this done.

Checking the light does not even come on at all


PRE-CHECK
1. DIAGNOSIS SYSTEM
(a) Description
 When troubleshooting OBDII vehicles, the only difference
from the usual troubleshooting procedure
is that you connect to the vehicle the OBDII scan
tool complying with SAE J1978 or TOYOTA handheld
tester, and read off various data output from
the vehicle’s ECM.
 OBDII regulations require that the vehicle’s onboard
computer lights up the Malfunction Indicator
Lamp (MIL) on the instrument panel when the computer
detects a malfunction in the emission control
system/components or in the powertrain control
components which affect vehicle emissions, or a
malfunction in the computer. In addition to the MIL
lighting up when a malfunction is detected, the applicable
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) prescribed
by SAE J2012 are recorded in the ECM memory
(See page DI-14 ).
If the malfunction does not reoccur in 3 consecutive trips, the
MIL goes off automatically but the DTCs remain recorded in the
ECM memory.

No AIR pump


Your vehicle came with a smog pump. It may have seized up (probably breaking the fan belt) and my have simply been removed by a mechanic at an earlier time. It is located below the alternator on your vehicle.
If there is no pump but a bracket to hold it, it has definitely been removed. Vehicles will often pass a state smog test without the pump. It only works during engine decelleration (when you lift your foot off of the gas pedal)
