This means you must drive the car long enough for all of the self-tests to run. Depending on the test it could be a single start and run to many cycles and many miles. Usually after about 50 miles of driving you have completed most tests.
I'm not sure where you are located, but in Ohio you can ask and have the car run on the dynamometer and compete your smog test this way.

Did you disconnect the battery recently? Or have the car worked on to correct a check engine light problem? And they reset the codes?

When this happens (loss of all power or code reset), the computer will run all its tests on all systems, and set a 'ready' condition when the tests are passed. Some tests require multiple 'drive cycles' or specific conditions (less than full tank of gas but more than 1/4 tank) to complete the test. Until all (or a specific number - some non-critical tests may be exempted) tests are 'ready', the car will not be passed. The assumption being that until a test is successfully completed, the computer may discover a problem with a system, one that would fail the smog test.

If you're confident that all problems have been fixed, you need to run through enough drive cycles so the computer can complete all required tests. Most ODBII code readers can also read the readiness of the systems. And most parts stores will read your codes for you (and system status) or let you borrow a reader.

2000 Nissan Altima XE need drive cycle to pass smog test after disconnecting battery


If you take your car to smog check station and they talk about drive cycle,that means you need to drive you car on the street at speed of 25 to 35 mph then take it to the freeway and accelerate to get the speed of the rest cars and drive you car at 55 to 65 mph then take it down to the street again and drive a little more the turn it off, this is what the mechanics call drive cycle after this the car if everything is right I mean if there is no any damaged sensor the onboard computer get all the info from the sensors and is ready to the test

Had both air fuel sensors replaced to pass CA smog. OBD2 evap and catalyst monitors say "inc" or "not ready," and vehicle won't pass smog.


Not sure how old the vehicle is, or model, or engine, so I can only give general suggestions. You may need new catyitic converters, or O2 sensors. They sometimes can't be corrected, just replaced.

Disconnecting the battery resets the PCM - engine computer ,an the emission monitors . A drive cycle has to be done to get the monitors to run an hopefully set. That's all you need to do is drive it for few days of different driving conditions - city , highway ,from cold start . google GM drive cycle . OBD Monitor Not Ready

after you replaced battery you have to drive 200-250 miles for computer to get all the info about car - in other words (to engage Drive Cycle). Remember that for next time. Never go for smog test right after you disconnect and reconnect battery- for all cars.
