Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I understand what you are going through. I have tried to "Ready" ODB2 monitors on a Neon with the same problems. All manufactures use different "Drive cycles" to run these tests.
Unfortunately the only way to know if the monitors have run and or passed is with the use of a scan tool. there are many inexpensive scanners with the capabilities to check for the monitors. (usually $60-$80 range).
A few tips for trying to run through the "Drive Cycle"
- try to keep the gas tank must be between 20-80% full. Evaporative emission tests wont run unless the tank level is within that range
- also try driving within the city (10-20 mins) then on the highway (10 mins) and then again in the city (10 mins). however driving the vehicle normally for a week or so should allow the computer to run all of these test on its own
I hope this information helps. If not please feel free to contact me for more information.
I was just wondering how the driving is going? have the monitors been able to set?
Let me know,
