If you had battery disconnected for over an hour or had check engine light checked & codes cleared, you will need to drive 50 miles minimum. I have seen some take up to 200 miles to set monitors. Try using all accesories like a/c,heat & rear window defogger. It will help set monitors quicker.

Incomplete monitors :catalyst 2004 envoy emmisions fail ?

After the MIL is turned off or the battery was disconnected for some time, all monitors are set to incomplete. However with several short trips with engine getting at least to hot enough for thermostat to open, (I believe 8 is the magic number of trips) most monitors are set, you may be able to pass the test with only one incomplete only.

Ok here I go again. I have a 2006 nissan altima 2.5s. I took it to a shop a few months ago for inspection. It failed. After having it diagnosed they said it was the down stream sensor. The code I was...

Real simple

None of the shops you went to,
know how to diagnose a vehicle

I think your statement about one monitor,
is the evap system ,because they can test
the gas cap,the others have to run clear,
at least in New Jersey

Almost seems like the people that come to this site

Your shop just throw parts at the codes & no testing
to find a problem

If the problems are solved, you don't have to clear the codes

Clearing the MIL Lamp or check engine light, clears all data,
emission monitors,& freeze frame data set at the time fault
codes are set,so you got nothing to work with to find a problem

So never clear fault codes after a repair,let the monitors do their thing

All sensors are aftermarket sensors-so that is nonsense

That should have been a clue to forget that shop

The same companies make sensors for everyone,
new vehicle or used

Vehicle manufactures stamp sheet steel & make bodies
& assemble purchased components only

Evap code cleared not ready showing

The EVAP monitor is a pain to set. It needs 2 full drive cycles and will not reset sometimes if an EVAP code is pending. Check the pending codes with your code tool and see if there are any for the EVAP, if not, like I said, the EVAP is a tough monitor to set.

How many other monitors are not ready?

Getting a P1391 error code on my 01 Caravan, Changed PCM Sensors, wires, plugs, EGR, Whats Next? Please

P1391 Glow Plug Circuit Low Input (Bank #1)
  • DTC P1391 or P1393 will set when the monitor indicates that all four glow plugs are not being powered on that bank. An open in the glow plug circuits, glow plug relay, glow plugs or monitoring circuit could be the possible causes.

    Both DTCs P1391 and P1393 together will set when the monitor indicates that all eight glow plugs are not being powered. An open in all glow plug circuits, the glow plug relay, glow plugs, fusible links or all three monitoring circuits could be the possible causes.
  • Possible causes:
    • glow plug relay
    • glow plug shunt
    • open in glow plug circuit(s) or monitoring circuit(s)
    • glow plugs
    • PCM

It takes more than a specific mileage to set monitors. It can take up to 2 weeks for all conditions to be met for the monitors to be run.

P0301 trouble code....have changed coil pack, plug wires, plugs. seems to run rough on cold start and then comes out of it

The misfire is detected by the misfire monitor as a slight change in engine speed which the PCM calculates back to a particular cylinder. The monitor is active continuously, but associates problems into 3 types. Two of the types are monitored on successive trips. The first trip the monitor detects a misfire it sets a pending code but not the MIL light. If on the second trip the same problem occurs the DTC code is set as current problem and sets the MIL light on. The MIL will stay on untill the DTC is deleted. The remaining type is a most sever case and signals the possibility of cat damage. In this case the misfire monitor identifies the problem and the PCM determines it to be severe and immediately sets the DTC as current and the MIL light to flash at a rate of 1 per second until the condition is no longer present, at which time the MIL stays on steady.

So once the P0301 is set it never turns off, except by code deletion procedure.

I think a lean burn condition could cause a misfire, but probably not from a PCV problem which should affect all cylinders equally. There would likely need to be another problem with that cylinder or intake or ...... .
