Failed Smog Test Monitors Not Ready

January 16, 2018

Car failed California smog test for obd2 monitors not ready? Here's a universal drive cycle to possibly help set monitors faster.

  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.
