Drive it some more. Has the battery been disconnected/replaced recently? The Inspection station should be able to print you out a drive cycle to get the monitors ready also.

I was reading in one of my repair manuals and it says in there that there could be a block where the exhaust gas pressure sensor is. There could be a blocked inlet hose. Or it could be the ECM.

Your SUV is really giving you a hard time, lol. Sorry but I've had those days too.
I would try to check if you have blocked EGR passages. If ok check for restricted MAP sensor vacuum hose/passage or restricted exhaust. I know you replaced the CAT but if the muffler is blocked then there would still be a restriction. Also check the wiring and connection to the MAP sensor.

The OBDII / OBD2 connector is 18" from the center of the center console.

You will need to purchase an OBDII scanner/reader to read these codes.

The alternative method is get a OBD2 cable and a laptop + software to pull the codes.

===
An inexpensive OBD2/CAN bus reader around $75-$120 is a good start.

Did the inspector mention anything about drive cycle or lack of stored readyness fields?

Please email on why it fail. You can append more info by click the button on TOP RIGHT of this page.

Cant pass emissions,i need at least one of the not ready status to become ready status out of the oxygen senson, evaporative system, catalyst


drive it. I am betting you have recently "cleared" codes which also clears readiness monitors in an attempt to better control people cheating the system. After enough drive cycles are reached the monitors will pass if nothing is wrong and turn to ready. If the problem that the codes implicated where not fixed than the check engine light will again come back on and you will again fail your attempt to pass emissions.

Drive it for a week or so and see what happens.

Toyota t100 obd not ready


The problem is not the parts but the communication between the parts and the computer. I would have the computer reflash and then drive the vehicle for a extended amount of time. This should fix the problem.

02 sensor not ready,catalyst not ready


The catalyst is able to oxidize hydrocarbons (unburnt fuel) at about 600 degrees. The air injection pump routes fresh air straight to thecat to aid in speeding up the light off time. once there, the cat stays warm enough to oxidize at all times. The oxygen sensors have heater circuits built in (4 wire vs. the earlier 2 wire O2 sensors, this is why they're referred to as HO2S; Heated O2 Sensors) As for the term "Not Ready" this applies to one of the monitors run by the PCM the Emissions Monitor. EGR flow, O2 sensor operation, catalyst temp are all monitored by the PCM so it can decide whether it will run in Open Loop (ignoring O2 sensor inputs) or Closed Loop (adjusting fuel trim by reading the O2 Sensor input) To change a monitor status from "Not Ready" to "Ready" is as simple as driving as per TRIP guidelines. Once a TRIP is completed (a TRIP is an acronym don't remember what it is right now, but a TRIP is different than a drive cycle) then monitors will have completed and be "ready" unless there is a problem in which a DTC will be stored along with freeze frame data (Mode 6) and if enough key cycles for the individual code (Some are instantaneous, some are 3 key cycles, some are 5, and some are successive key cycles), then a MIL or Check Engine Light will turn on as well.
Hope this helps

My 2003 Olds Aurora won't come to ready (evaporative system and O2 sensor indicated on OBDII.


monitoring to detect ignition and fuel related misfires that may cause emissions to increase and/or damage to the catalytic converter.

Fuel System Monitoring to detect changes in fuel mixture that may cause emissions to increase.

Comprehensive Component Monitoring to detect any major faults in engine sensors that may cause emissions to increase.
The OBD monitors that only run under certain conditions include the EVAP monitor, HEGO monitor (Heated Exhaust Gas Oxygen sensor), and the Catalyst Efficiency monitor.
Did You Unplug The Battery Both Sides And Let Sit For #0 Minutes? Or Did You Scan With A scanner And Clear The Existing Codes? Most of The Time When You Correct The Issues With Your ECM It Will Clear Up But Just Like A computer You Must Restart It to Make Changes !! Hope This Helps !!

EMISSIONS INSPECTION FAILED


This just means that the OBD was reset recently and the car hasnt been driven enough for readings to be given by the OBDII. Just drive the car a while, and then all should be READY. After any OBDII reset, the car must go through a certain number of "Drive Cycles" before the OBDII will emit any readings. Refer to the manufacturer to find out exactly how many, and how to complete them.

Monitor Reset


The following conditions must occur to complete a Trip and test all OBD II monitors and components including the Catalyst Efficiency Monitor:
-- The misfire, comprehensive component, and adaptive fuel monitors are checked continuously from engine warm-up and can complete any time.
-- The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) monitor test requires a series of idles and accelerations.
-- The heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) monitor requires a steady speed drive for approximately 1 minute at 30 to 40 mph.
-- The catalyst efficiency monitor requires a steady speed drive for 1 minute and 20 seconds beyond the HO2S monitor test at 40 to 65 mph.
If you cut engine off before test are completed then you must wait for a 6 hour cool down before monitors will run again.
