Having problems with your 2004 Dodge Stratus ?

I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus that is not passing inspection. There is no check engine light on, and the catalystic convertor and oxygen sensors are not reading, so it is not passing. It keeps saying to be reset. So I have driven it over 500 miles and it is still not passing.(3 times to the station already) Originally it was 8 sensors not reading now it is only 3 - the cat convertor and 2 oxygen sensors. What is the problem and how can I get this car to pass inspection? It is a spare car that si

Answers :

Check the Power Control Module Confectioners. Look for any damages like corrosion or break in the wire and also check the fuses in the fuse box. Look for corrosion in the fuse box it self since it's located under the hood where condensation forms during the night and replace any bad fuses and last is to check the wire leads to the O2 sensors. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon.

When I went back to autozone to get codes again it read none. I went to inspect and still not ready yet. Cannot inspect did not pass emission do I have to do a drive cycle to get computer to read ready? where can I get it.

I have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier. The engine light came on and it was the catilac convertor that needed to be replace. Mechanic completed the job and now the engine light is off. Took the car in for inspection and it failed because two sensors have not reset yet because of mileage. I drove the car over 150 miles and it will still not pass because of the 2 sensors. Chevy house said that the two sensors will not reset until it is about 74 degrees outside. I have never heard of this. Any idea of

Mass Air Flow sensor! Just remove your air filter cover. Go to Auto Zone and purchase some solvent. Spray past the air filter and it should correct the problem. If not, replace the Mass air-flow sensor. This is commonly mistaken for an oxygen sensor. ... 2000 Toyota Corolla

I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 sedan. The check engine light was on. The code read P0113 (high output) which was the only code the computer was throwing off. We replaced the mass air flow sensor. Now the car is throwing a totally different code P0102 (low output). We are at a total loss. We have had the code history cleared, disconnected the battery and cycled the engine through. Any suggestions? I need to get it resoved to pass NYS emissions inspection. Thanks!

The 94 Buick lesabre would hesitate while driving then died and I replaced the mass air flow sensor and oxygen sensor and the car only runs with the mass air sensor unplugged but runs rough the oxygen sensor said low voltage so I replaced it and Im not sure if the catylitic convertor is plugged but exhaust still comes out but its very hot and it stinks as soon as I plug the mass air flow sensor back in the car dies


Well it sounds like a plugged converter. i use an infer red temp sensor thaT i can monitor the temp before and after the cat to see if it is working. you can also take the upstream o2 sensor out and run it that way to see if you gain the integrity of ... 1994 Buick LeSabre

My engine light came on in my 2007 chevy montecarlo. when the engine light came on my car read engine has lost power. From that point my car would'nt go pass 15 miles per hour. Now when this happened the first time the code on the car was a throttle pedal position sensor, now this sensor was changed and the car was fine for 2 days an then the same thing happened all over again. When this problem occured again we got that sensor took off and replaced it with a new one. 2 days later whick is today


Codes don't always mean a bad senors. One new TPS sensor would have me moving on to something else. Put a scan tool on it and not just a code reader. Check fuel pressure with the gauge on the windshield as you drive. ... 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

I have a 97 Mercury Sable GS and I have to pass smog in the sate of California by the end of this month. I have an OBD-II pocket scanner and have run diagnostics on the car. It showed 3 codes. The first was P1131 (Lack of upstream heated oxygen sensor switch-sensor indicates lean- bank no. 1). The second code was P0171 (System too lean-bank no.1). The third code was P0174 (System too Lean-bank no. 2). I know that all of these codes have to do with emissions so I'm sure the car will not pass smog

On my 97 Olds Aurora, I'm having trouble passing emissions. An oxygen sensor is malfunctioning, I have had my codes read and they say it's the bank 1 sensor 1. But I just replaced the very first oxygen sensor right off of the exhaust manifolds. The sensor that malfunctioned is before the catalytic converter. But there are two before the CAT. So which one do I replace?


The bank 1 sensor should be the one before the CAT on the side of the engine that includes cylinder #1. If you're not sure which bank that is, look across the heads from the side of the engine (front of the car) The bank with #1 on it will have the ... 1997 Oldsmobile Aurora

About two weeks ago, my check engine light came on. My boyfriend said the problem could be the oxygen sensor. We just recently had a code reading at pep boys and the code came up as p0135. I did a little research and of course, the problem is the o2 sensor. We haven't fixed the problem yet but will very soon. My only question is...every time my car is in idle it feels as if the car is about to give out or die. Will the car actually die on the road if I don't fix this problem anytime soon?


Hi and welcome to FixYa!\012\012It may and it may not. If the sensor reached it's break point it may get you on a bad time. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have the 02 sensor replaced as soon as possible.\012\012Ho ... Honda Civic

Oxygen Sensor I failed my car inspection due to the oxygen sensor, once I got the sensor replaced I took it back and it failed again he said it didnt need to be replaced it just needed to be set, what does he mean reset and how can that be done?


If you had it replaced it should have already been set however you can reset your cars computer by taking the positive battery cable off the battery and waiting 2-3 min and then touching the positive cable from the car to the negative cable which is ... 2003 Honda Accord

I have been pulling the clock fuse on my 98 Honda Accord and putting it back in so that the check engine light would be off for State car inspection. Passed the last two inspections this way. Today however the inspector failed the car because he could tell the fuse had been pulled. Are they using better software or did I do something wrong? The check engine light is for a sensor on the transmission and a second one on the exaust. I cannot afford to have a mechanic make the repairs. Car runs very

My minivan will not pass inspection. I put over 2k in repairs but since the "low wiper fluid" light wont shut off my mechanic will not pass it for inspection. EVERYTHING in the car is up and running. All the sensors are new, air filter, oil changed (engine and transmission) yet this one thing will now allow it to be inspected. 2001 Nissan Quest.. any suggestions?


I assume you changed the sensor in the wiper fluid tank. The plug-in could be making poor contact with the sensor so try moving it on the sensor to see if that will put it out. If it does then change the plug-in. Try unplugging it and see if the ligh ... 2001 Nissan Quest
