What is the drive cycle for a 2003 Nissan Sentra SE?


Take extra caution while performing dirve cycles on public roadways. Drive cycles can be difficult to follow under normal driving conditions. Begin by: - Start the engine. Idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defroster on. - Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. - Hold at a steady speed of 55 mph for three minutes. - Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. - Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at ¾ throttle. - Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes. - Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. If all other emissions systems are functioning properly, completing the drive cycle above will set the "readiness flags" required to pass the smog check. It will not hurt to perform the drive cycle 2 or 3 times before the smog test.

NEED DRIVE CYCLE FOR 2004 CRV TO RESET CAT AND O2 MONOTOR


Here is the info

NOTE: The ignition key must not be on prior to the cold start otherwise the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.

1. As soon as the engine starts, idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defrost on. OBDII checks oxygen sensor heater circuits, air pump and EVAP purge.

2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks for ignition misfire, fuel trim and canister purge.

3. Hold at a steady state speed of 55 mph for three minutes.

OBDII monitors EGR, air pump, O2 sensors and canister purge.

4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. OBDII checks EGR and purge functions.

5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks misfire, fuel trim and purge again.

6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.

OBDII monitors catalytic converter efficiency, misfire, EGR, fuel trim, oxygen sensors and purge functions.

7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. OBDII makes a final check of EGR and canister purge.

How do i do the drive cycle on a 1997 nissan pathfinder


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.

1996 Saab 900S with OBD code P0411 - check engine light on


Once you fix it, the car has to go through several drive cycles. For my VW, it has to go through 3. This involves starting up cold (car has been sitting for some time), idling with AC on for a few minutes, getting over 55, coasting to a stop, getting over 55 and coasting to a stop again. It should take at least 3 days to clear.
-or-
Disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes. The problem with this is that the computer has to relearn some things, but should be fine. If the problem still exists, the light will return after 1 drive cycle.
-or-
Have it cleared with an OBD scan tool, which shops such as AutoZone, will do for free.
