Hey! So I reset the codes, drive 70 miles on the highway, and reset it while i'm driving? If that doesn't work what are the names of the shops that can get it to readiness mode for an inspection!?!?the trick I use on my 30th is to reset codes, drive it about 70 miles distance, no more or less, do one cold start and get it up to op temp on highway, then retest it.
pulled it off last 3 yrs in NH.. I think in MA, you can have one monitor fail... I know a few shops nar boston than can get OBD2 cars into readiness for long enough to legally get a sticker hehe
stupid system, hippie govt lol useless
hows ur 30th?
What would be "accurate terminology"? Where would the diagnostic fuse be located? The OBD2 connects, but all the monitors flash as if they aren't "ready"With the newer testing stations it refers to any of the monitored engine/emmission systems plus the BeCM for mileage and VIN. If any one of these systems has been reset, battery disconnected, fuse pulled etc there is a number of drive cycles that must be completed before the testing stations will accept that it is ready for monitoring.
As far as your individual rig there simply isn;t enough information or accurate terminology for us to help you. I would doubt that "none" of your systems are ready. if none of them can be accessed then it would most likely be a port issue such as corrosion or diagnostic fuse being blown.
Your phrase "monitors" makes no sense to me or the tech I asked yesterday. What is actually not ready? What actual SYSTEM is not ready? OBD is pretty basic and simple. You can connect or you can't. If they can connect then they need to tell you EXACTLY what the issue is. You have mentioned resetting codes/them coming back. Okay, what codes do you have? That would be a big flag waving and pointing towards any issue that needs to be addressed. If you have no codes then there is nothing to reset unless you are messing around with adaptive values.The OBD2 connects, but all the monitors flash as if they aren't "ready"
