Unfortunately it is not a certain amount of time or miles that the car needs to be driven.

There are several 'readiness monitors' that basically cover each emissions related system. For instance there is an EVAP monitor that checks the EVAP system and all of it's components under certain specific conditions (No VSS, TPS, O2 sensor, IAT, MAP, Fuel trim, Injector ciruit, EGR pintle position, ECT, or MAF sensor DTC codes set; Start up engine temp 40F-86F; gas tank between 15% and 85% full, Barometer above 75 kPa, system voltage 8V-16V).

So more information is needed as to what failed you the first time. What DTC code was triggered?

If the problem has been fixed right, the history codes will go away after 40 CONSECUTIVE drive cycles WITHOUT the problem re-occurring.

Good Luck.

Autozone will run a scan on your car for nothing and give you codes and possible solutions.

Has the fuel filter been chg. lately. If it has, maybe a fuel pressure test is in order. Fuel pump might be geeting weak and does not show up until it gets warmed up. Fuel pumps are a common problem on this type of cars.

SOURCE: How do I reset my Check Engine Light?

you could go to an auto parts store and they can reset it for you, or you could pull your battery cables off the battery and hold them together for about 10 sec. that will clear any codes.

SOURCE: My 2000 buick lesabre is stalling and cutting off while driving

suspect 'mass air flow' sensor or possibly a rip in the air duct from the air filter to the throttle body. this sensor, if bad, can definitely cause stalling/rough running and is notoriously difficult to diagnose, as an intermittent failure often does not throw a code to trip the chk engine lite. the sensor is located immediately next to the air filter box and has a connector of approx 6-8 wires going into it. one quick and dirty way to elicit a problem (if there is one) is to gently rap on the metal housing of the sensor w/ the handle of a screwdriver or a small light hammer. it is advised to avoid hitting the flat plastic part on the sensor (where the wire connector is inserted) since there is sensitive silicon circuitry underneath and you could potentially break something that may not have been broken already.

Hi,
Get the check engine light checked out. Some auto parts stores will check it for free - call first. Otherwise, you'll need a mechanic or the dealer.

97 Buick Lesabre, had emmisions test done (which it passed) as soon as leaving emmisions test check engine light came on. Any ideas what may have caused this?


Stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE OBII scan. It will read all your fault codes and more than likely light came on because of emission test. But have them read the faults and reset your light.

How long does it take check engine light to go off after map sensor is replaced. Car is a 1998 buick leSabre. Code reader pointed to map sensor. I understand it takes several starts for light to reset so...


you can take of the ground of the battery of the car for 30 minutes and the computer will reset. if you drive around without reseting the computer might figure it out after 30 miles.

Nope, you just need more miles. When the car's computer has been disconnected from power (such as when the battery is unhooked), it'll set what are called "readiness codes" when power is reapplied. It takes a certain number of miles to clear these - some cars require 50 miles, some 100 miles, and some (such as some Isuzu models) need very specific drive cycles to clear them. Once the requisite number of miles have been driven without issues, the readiness codes will extinguish and your car should pass.
