Not enough data in computer for emissions testing

Has the battery been disconnected, or has it gone dead? Every time the battery is disconnected, all trouble codes are cleared, the check engine light is turned off, and all system monitors are reset. For the monitors to get back to a 'ready' status, the vehicle needs to go through one or more (sometimes quite a few) drive cycles. When you go to the emission station, they check for codes, AND also check to see how many of your monitors are in a 'ready' status. (This keeps people from disconnecting the battery, and thus clearing any trouble codes, in order to pass emission tests). If you have not disconnected your battery for a while, but the monitors are still not showing 'ready', you need to have a qualified shop check out your computer and other electronic systems.

My key doesn't have a chip in it for my 2001 Chevy S10. So how is it the the passlock or passcode causes problem? This is trouble some as this

Although some keys do not have an embedded transponder, such keys are designed to give access to the vehicle only and not to allow engine starting. To allow engine starting there must be an embedded transponder in the key, programmed with the correct code. In the early days of passive immobiliser systems some manufacturers used a key fob to operate the central locking and to house the rice-grain-like transponder chip. Sometimes the key or the fob would break and the owner would attempt to start the engine fruitlessly as the fob would be in a pocket or handbag (purse). The fob had to be within a few inches of the ignition/steering lock...

My 2001 Chevy s10blows hot air all the time

First while the engine is running, look under the hood and see if the air conditioner compressor is turning. If it is not then using gauges hook them up and see if the system has pressure. If both gauges show 80 psi or more then you have an electrical problem somewhere in the system. Check fuses and connections. Hook up a 12volt feed wire to the positive feed connector on the compressor( green wire). If it starts running then check the electrical system. If there is no pressure or very little then there is not enough pressure to override the low pressure switch. Carefully add a lb of 134a freon to the system and see what happens.

2001 chevy s10 clicking

I'm assuming it's an automatic. That being said I'm also guessing it's a V6 with a distributor back by the firewall. THAT could be the 'clicking' you hear. IF my assumptions are correct i would remove the distributor cap and look at the terminals on the underside. You may very well see the terminals have had contact made to them by the rotor. Thus causing the 'clicking' and stalling. The distributor could be worn and has an excessive amount of 'slop' or play in the area where the shaft goes thru the housing. Causing the rotor to wander and hitting the terminals. Check out this video; Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 blazer and my reverse went out on my transmission. Could this be a problem with trans filter not being replaced or a valve problem? Can it be fixed your should i just replace it? thanks

Most likely a shift solenoid problem. It could turn into a valve body failure if filter changes have been neglected. Another possibility is a failed transmission control module. All of which can be repaired

2001 s10 did not overheat but lost power, coasted to stop, white smoke from tailpipe and engine. What could this be?

The white smoke is probably steam caused by coolant getting into the cylinder(s) either from a faulty head gasket, cracked cylinder head or cracked engine block. The loss of heat from the heater indicated that coolant was being lost..

I have a 2001 S10 that the heater doesnt work in. Also when I select defrost, floor etc. I always get constant flow from vents with very little flow to defrost and floor. Could these be related? All I

Make sure there is enough coolant in the engine ... if you are a few quarts low it will not get to the heater core. If there is enough there is something wrong with your heater door / actuator or cable.

The drivers side interior door

Probably clips are broken...Check with auto body store that has clips . It might be as simple as replacing the clip and snapping the panel back into the mounting hole. It may be a bit tricky so take time to look at how it is mounted. Usually once you pull the whole panel off the other clips will break so you will need a few replacements. Most are plastic and relatively cheap. Super glue will not work.. When it gets cold the glue gets brittle and cracks. That is why panels are held on with clips.

2001 S-10 No Tail/Brake Lights

Hello Dallas, There is a possibility that both bulbs are burned out or the paste that GM seals the lamps sockets with is preventing a good connection between the contacts. Remove the bulbs and test for power (with the brake pedal depressed or the running lights turned on.) If your multi meter reads voltage, it's the lamps, if not...check for continuity on the brake light switch (connected wires removed.) The headlight switch controls the running lights, the brake light switch controls the brake lights. Good grounds are also critical so make sure they have clean solid connections.

My son has a 2001

There is a fuel pressure regulator that has to be tested. If that tests OK, then have the injectors tested. The MAP sensor will tell the ECU to add extra fuel if it has failed.
