You are simply driving it. A drive cycle will reset all monitors in minutes. Do a google search for your year make model car and read and follow instructions to the T or it will not work.

What is the drive cycle for a 2002 Yukon XL 1500


I don't understand "drive cycle". You can clear the codes by unhooking the battery for 5 minutes then repowering.

It's not the battery itself that's the issue. When you disconnected the battery to replace it, you cleared all the data from the computer. The computer then runs a self test of all systems to determine that they are functioning properly. There are several systems to be tested, and until they pass the test, each system is classified 'not ready'. Some system tests are done very quickly, with only one 'drive cycle', and they become 'ready'. Some systems require multiple drive cycles, and take longer. For some vehicles, specific criteria have to be met. On my vehicle, before the vapor recovery system can be tested, the fuel tank has to be between 1/4 and 3/4 full.

Some testing stations (depending on state) require all systems to be 'ready'. Some require a specific number to be 'ready', e.g., seven of nine. Find out what the requirements are, and which systems still need to complete testing, then check with a dealer for your make/model to see what is required to complete testing for that (those) systems.

How many miles do i need to drive to have the computer re-ready to accept obd codes?


200 miles is more than enough. p0420 is a cat code meaning the cat in the exhaust is not doing its job. you need to make sure there are no exhaust leaks before the downstream (last one) o2 sensor. if you can get all but 1 monitor to set without the check eng light coming on, you will pass pa emmissions.

O2 sensor, catalyst, and erg valve all coming up not ready. Had to jump battery 1 day ago, but still coming up not ready. Any suggestions?


Keep driving it for a week. It's called a drive cycle and there is no way you can do one in the city or anywhere. The self diagnostics will eventually see what it wants and turn itself to read ready. Be patient. Bob

Let's see if I got this right.The vehicle can't be driven because of legal issues with the emissions test, and it has to be driven 200 miles before it can be tested. Talk about your catch 22. Jack that thing up, put it on jack stands, fire it up, put it in gear, and watch the miles add up.

Interior lights do not come on when door is opened 2008 pont g6 gt


1. Check to ensure the interior light manual switch is not set in the fully off position. If it is, the interior lights won't come on when opening the doors.

2. I assume you can switch on the interior lights manually at all times.

3. If everything checks out and there is no obvious cause then the door activated switches are no doubt faulty or the wiring to the door switches is faulty.

The car is a 2008 build and should still be covered by the manufacturer's new car warranty unless the maximum warranty miles have been exceeded.
