For those of you having to go back to stock for smog in California make sure you get your 15 cold starts in and more than 200 miles driven on the stock map or you will not pass.
The ECU doesn't know what state it's in. It reads rear o2 sensors, and reports its o2 and catalyst readiness state accordingly.Your not in California, are you? It looks like you are in North Carolina. No way they are as tough as in Cali. I specifically asked about Cali and that is what they told me. If they do work, that would be cool,
Correct, the rear O2 sensors output a 0-1V signal and the ECU looks for that signal to be in a certain range letting it know the cats are functioning properly.The ECU doesn't know what state it's in. It reads rear o2 sensors, and reports its o2 and catalyst readiness state accordingly.
I drove 200 miles and it did not work for me.I saw this video and it worked really quick.I'm in California, and we originally thought you had to drive a minimum 100 miles but after trying to run the car at a smog check point it didn't pass. So I'll be putting another 100 miles on it today.
Video you're referencing is to get emission I/M monitors to set ready (CAT, O2, O2 Heater, EVAP, Secondary Air, etc). There is a very specific drive pattern / cycle for each I/M monitors to toggle from incomplete to ready. I've used the 350Z drive cycle posted in this forum and was able to get all I/M monitors to set ready in about 30 miles. It's taken others few hundred miles - really depends how closely you follow the drive cycle.I drove 200 miles and it did not work for me.I saw this video and it worked really quick.Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
Any electrical engineers our there? I'd contribute to a gofundme page to get this going.What we really need here is a modern "Game Genie" - a MITM device we can wire into the harnesses to intercept and rewrite signals relevant to these checks. First off, that would require the interceptor piece to map what they read and in what order to effect a scan... ditto an unmodified (other than the interceptor) car. Once the signals are mapped, there are several ways to overwrite outputs back to the scanner when a scan is detected. What ever happened to "right to repair" anyway?
