Have Toyota Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.
When the Readiness Monitors are not set to ready, unfortunately, it is true- the only way to cure this is to drive the vehicle. Basically, it's roughly 75-100 miles of combined highway and stop-and-go city driving. Toyota has issued a "Drive Cycle" that can be done that will help get the Monitors set to 'ready' more quickly and efficiently. Try to stay as close as possible to the times and speeds stated in the Cycle for best and quickest results. For easier viewing/printing, I've wrapped up the Drive Cycle into a PDF file.
