I can't get an inspection sticker for my car because it keeps failing inspection because the computer will not reset. Every time it does the same thing. When they test the OBDII Readiness it says the Catalyst, the Evap. System and the O2 Sensor are "Not Ready". There are no trouble codes. Everything else passes. I've done a few things that they said might reset it which were keeping the gas between half a tank and a quarter of a tank for about three days and driving 70 -75 MPH for about 15 minut


Every time you reset the light or disconnect the battery it completely resets the system and it has to go through EVERY test again. The O2, EVAP, and Cat tests are generally the LAST THREE tests that are tested. You're not doing yourself any favors ... 2006 Mazda 6

Trouble code P0430 "Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold" I was told it could be an oxygen sensor and was also told that this truck has 4 such sensors.

The dealership replaced my AC evaporator component because the hose had been draining water on the passenger side floor board. Since replacing the system, my AC doesn't blow as cold (on normal setting), yet the dealer keeps suggesting I run it on "Max" (because of the outside temp.), and that it's supposedly w/in Nissan "specs" when they test it with a thermometer. What could be the cause of this intermittent temperature problem?


Make sure you have it on recirculate. Need to know how much freon is in the car with a gauge. If the outside temp is above 96 degrees you must run on max to get the car cool. Do you have tint on your windows. Window Tint keeps your car 33% cooler and ... 2006 Nissan Armada
