Emissions Inspection Failure

61 posts in this topic

Almost 200 miles on the car and light still flashing.

If it is still flashing tonight when I get home.... I will load a revised tune and start over again.

If that fails.... I will try this procedure on Saturday, which Mike sent me.

Here’s a document I use for performing the OBD2 readiness set:

 

RUNNING AN OBDII DRIVE CYCLE
Suppose you have "fixed" an emissions problem on an OBDII-equipped vehicle. How can you check your work? By performing what is called an "OBDII drive cycle."
The purpose of the OBDII drive cycle is to run all of the onboard diagnostics. The drive cycle should be performed after you have erased any trouble codes from the PCM memory, or after the battery has been disconnected. Running through the drive cycle sets all the system monitors so that subsequent faults can be detected.
The OBDII drive cycle begins with a cold start (coolant temperature below 122 degrees F and the coolant and air temperature sensors within 11 degrees of one another).
NOTE: The ignition key must not be on prior to the cold start otherwise the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.
1. As soon as the engine starts, idle the engine in drive for two and a half minutes with the A/C and rear defrost on. OBDII checks oxygen sensor heater circuits, air pump and EVAP purge.
2. Turn the A/C and rear defrost off, and accelerate to 55 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks for ignition misfire, fuel trim and canister purge.
3. Hold at a steady state speed of 55 mph for three minutes.
OBDII monitors EGR, air pump, O2 sensors and canister purge.
4. Decelerate (coast down) to 20 mph without braking or depressing the clutch. OBDII checks EGR and purge functions.
5. Accelerate back to 55 to 60 mph at half throttle. OBDII checks misfire, fuel trim and purge again.
6. Hold at a steady speed of 55 to 60 mph for five minutes.
OBDII monitors catalytic converter efficiency, misfire, EGR, fuel trim, oxygen sensors and purge functions.
7. Decelerate (coast down) to a stop without braking. OBDII makes a final check of EGR and canister purge.

Again, if it is flashing, not constantly on, it will not reset by driving. You need to reload your tune.

move... NC voted to stop  testing. just waiting for them to do it. Also many counties in NC don't even have testing, cuz of farm trucks,rural  etc.

 

 good luck, check MV for how to get a waiver.

 

 since i didn't have codes only not ready they were nice enough over the last 2 years to give me waivers.

I think it has to do with no codes so mechanics can't diagnose or fix the issue. so  just tell them to fuck off.:olol

A2 Speed solved my issue with mine showing “not ready”. You can drive a thousand miles and it won’t make any difference until someone does what they did. If you figure something else out I’d love to know what it was/is that’s causes this.

That would be cool. Never seen a flashing light ever go away. Had a few related to O2’s I could never get rid of.

Update..... car passed the emission test on Friday. Drove the car straight to the DMV to get plate sticker. Handed over the pass certificate.... ownership and insurance. He looks at his screen and says "No can do." You have been flagged for insurance. I pointed to the pink insurance slip dated June 30th. He replies... it takes 5 to 10 business days for it to hit our computer...… Wha?????? WTF???? he offered me a temporary sticker for $15..... no thanks..... see you next Friday.
