Was your check engine light on or off? If it is on when the engine is running then you need to fix the codes and reset the moniters. If it is not on when you turn on the key, then there is a problem with the computer. May be a bad bulb or fuse pr ecm.

SOURCE: I did an e-check on my 2001 cavalier and it fail

more often than not, it's an O2 sensor, but it's a good idea to use an OBDII scanner to verify -- I think many parts stores can do this for you (can't hurt to ask), although I don't know if there's a charge, but at most repair garages it will probably be around $80 (at least around here it is)

SOURCE: My emission test fail with the mil cmd fail code

the code reader couldnt access the software so its a dealer only job ,we do not have this probelm in europe as a sensor probe is inserted into the exhaust pipe ,Only the dealer can access the diadnosis socket here in europe and new cars have to be accessed via the internet as not even the dealers have the software ,its to stop the chinese from hacking and selling the software over the internet so the ECU has a encryption chip that changes the codes used 3 times a second just like satalite TV card

SOURCE: Failed emission. BMW 325 Ci. MIL CMD failed. KOER fail. What does it mean?

There is a problem with the way the engine is burning fuel also the check engine light bulb is out..In otherwords when a car is inspected and put on the analyzer. It runs tests of various systems. In your case KOER means your check engine light is supposed to come on when you crank the car and go off once the car starts. Yours never came on as a check (maybe bulb out ) or intentionally disconnected. Also your care is putting out emissions above the limit.

What does mil cmd fail mean?


MIL is your malfunction indicator lamp, (check engine light)

CMD is the computer interface port, or OBDII port indicating a malfunction communicating with your cars computer

check all the fuses, primarily any marked pcm and retest your vehicle
note: your check engine or MIL has to be on in KOEO state (key on engine off), if the bulb is burned out everything will still work and the OBDII test computer will show MIL status ON, and if you don't have a computer to tell you that, you must get that light to light in the koeo state.

My 2001 Ford Taurus stalls and the "check engine"


Moisture is getting into and shorting a component in the electrical system, killing the spark. Someone is going to have to identify where and fix it.

I took my moms 2001 ford taurus to be inspected. It fail due to EGR sensor.. Machnic said sensor needed to be cleaned. After taking apart he said valve was badly cloged. Soaked overnight and said it would...


I would highly suspect the "EGR backpressure sensor"
From experience and many conversations, a clooged EGR valve is almost unheard of these day. Get to an auto part store, were they can tell you what problem code(s) your car is getting, and possible good advice.
Sincerely, another 2001 Taurus owner.
