Odd emissions failure, 2006 CS

Recommended Posts

I recently sold my 06 Cayman S - in perfect working order - to a friend who moved to TX..

He failed the emission test required to register it with:

Catalyst - (Not Ready)

2nd Air System - (Not ready)

Evaporative Control System - (Not ready)

O2 Sensor - (Not ready)

"Not ready", as in no error code either... I understand this can happen if the battery was disconnected and you simply have to drive it some more...

The odd part is I don't recall disconnecting the battery recently, nor does it make sense for the shipper to have disconnected it, but....who knows, I *may* have done it to reinstall sprintbooster a few hundred miles back in which case I'm going senile... The car is bone stock, no software, and in great state of tune, no errors stored (durametric checked a while back).

Can anyone highlight the *exact* reset procedure, if it is available to us ? I think you have to drive at specific speeds for a while or something funny.. Worst case is that somethign the dealer can help with or is it just a "drive it some more" thing? Again, no CEL, no codes... just "not ready" on some components.

The computer’s internal EPA “I/M Readiness Test” mandates that the car must run through several full driving cycles (cold start, warm to full temp, drive at highway speeds, cool down to cold) before any critical emissions sensors will be ready to pass the test. This is done specifically to prevent disconnecting the battery just before going for an emissions test. How many cycles vary with manufacturer and model year, some can go over 100 or more miles.
