Most of the time when it goes to a kind of a electronic idle it is a fuel problem. Is the bike EFI or Carb? Are you putting in 91 octane fuel? Running below 91 octane can cause this problem after a long period of running the lesser. I found this out the hardway replacing everythiing from the coil to the computer. I hope this helps you

Why is mybcm not letting me pass insp there is no code on thi1996 chry lhs what is going on


You mean PCM most states read the readiness monitors depending on the state on how many they allow not to be completed. The first one on the list that is hard to get run and pass is the EVAP Because this requires the car to be cold and fuel tank must between 15%-85% and both air temp and coolant temp with in 10 degrees of each other. Start car let idle for 5 -10 minutes Then drive car normally no hard accelerations or quick stops bring speed to 50-60 mph and coast down to 20-15 mph without brake pedal input repeat this twice.Then bring speed to 58-62 mph and set cruise control run for 12-16 miles exit freeway caught a red light or stop and idle 2 minutes shut car off rest for 5 minutes and repeat freeway drive. then redo morning cold start again . then have some one test the generic readiness monitors to what needs to run and attempt again. California before 2000 1 can be incomplete after 2000 all have to be completed which is hard some will not run for 800 miles.

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. A couple of months ago, just after starting the car one day, the 'check engine' and 'trac off' lights both came on. I immediately shut off the car, waited approximately 5...


Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

Not Ready for Smog test


it is not how many miles but the type of driving.

here is a OBD2 drive cycle test.

Generic OBD II "Drive Cycle" Most OBD II ("On-Board Diagnostics II") diagnostic monitors will run at some time during normal operation of the vehicle.
However, to satisy all of the different Trip enable criteria and run all of the OBD II diagnostic monitors, the vehicle must be driven under a variety of conditions. The following drive cycle will (theoretically) allow all monitors to run on (??) vehicle. (Note: Drive cycle specifics vary by vehicle!)
  1. Ensure that the fuel tank is between 1/4 and 3/4 full.
  2. Start cold (below 86°F /30°C) and warm up until engine coolant temperature is at least 160° F (typically requires at least one minute; up to 3 minutes).
  3. Accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for five minutes.
  4. Decelerate without using the brake (coast down) to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute.
  5. Restart and accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for two minutes.
  6. Decelerate with using the brake [or the clutch!] by coasting down to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute.

My max has 166K miles and was running fine. My daughter started it and it would not go above 2000 rpm and was running rough, then it just quit. I checked spark, battery, replaced fuel pump and fuel...


This is why we do not let girls drive..... OKAY just kidding.

I suggest that you chech the pickup filter and the normal fuel filter for contamination.

Replace the coolant sensor. If the system were to decide that it is too hot, it can shut down, after the "limp home" mode runs out.

dont think it is a fuel issure sounds like a MASS AIR PROBLEM if a car is stalling while driving and will not starts but cranks its one of two things a fuel prob. or an air problem i would first check your idle air valve as well *** your tps sensor if this is happening while you drive the vehicle it sounds like at some point there is either too much air or fuel in chambes causeing missfire inturn shutting down the engine reason for not starting again is simple if its too much fiel its flooded and if it's not enough air your engine cant start if it starts after 3 hours sounds like enough time for all fumes to have subsided in chamber and again allowing for a clean start up check tps and idle air valve as well as mass air flow
