You have to drive the car at least 50 miles or more after you have had the computer cleared out. The computer has 3 or 5 monitors that keep track of the emission and fuel system. You may have to drive it even further but the best way to find out the problem is. is to find a shop that has a computer that can check out the system to see why it does not get ready. usually it is a o2 sensor but you need a scope that monitors each sensor.

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.

They should have been able to do it in the shop. Some of the sensors will reset everytime you turn off the car so that may well be whats happening. Try another emission place and see what they say but do not tell them you were "just at another place"

2002 Nissan Sentra Check engine light diagnostics


There is a leak somewhere in the evaporative emission control system. The best way to test that is have a smoke test done on it to find out where the leak is. You'll have to call around to see if any repair shops have a smoke machine, or call a dealer.

Computer "not ready" for emmissions testing


Your computer will re-set and be "ready" after a certain number of restarts and miles, depending upon how much you use the car it should take from a few days to a week. Surprised the tech didn't tell you that!
