@  Mckinney_Tx : (05 February 2016 - 08:54 PM) hell i aint
@  Dylan214 : (05 February 2016 - 05:27 PM) Yeah its more of the I dont want to lose the info, and not have anyone use the site. Yes FB is great! but when were having huge topics about stuff We can't archive it if its important.
@  borgwarrior : (05 February 2016 - 09:06 AM) but we are still here, no matter what. :)
@  sgtmyers88 : (04 February 2016 - 07:54 PM) Yeah my original intent for the FB page was just to be a check in page to keep in touch if the main sight/firum goes down again.. It kinda evolved on its own from there..
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:25 AM) Hyper, I would love to take "more roll" or even purchase site and make it great/ better then before. This being said I am going to keep that in mind for the app bc I am still learning that. I am a IT Security/Networking guy. I do Websites etc on the sites but mostly Whitehat stuff.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:22 AM) I can agree with you there friend... I could even make a phone app. It can be active forum... but like you said .... With the right People.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:07 AM) I want to restore the forum and I believe it can be done, But we gotta think, Do we have the right ppl for the job? YEs we do, there def alot of things we could do and etc but it all depends on who wants to grab the bull by the horns and thats me I want to make this site the ALL in one.
@  Dylan214 : (04 February 2016 - 09:04 AM) I understand where yalls are coming from, But you dont want to lose the traffic and etc for the Forum. The FB page doesnt allow you to keep backups , no archiving, and no searchability, Now look I understand ppl use fb easier then this forum but I wouldnt just drive all the traffic to that page.
@  Hyper4fx : (04 February 2016 - 09:01 AM) FB will always be more active and responsive then this Forum..... just sayin. The forum is okay for looking up stuff.. But FB is real time interaction... I started a Dodge Stratus FB Tribute page 4 years ago when this forum lost it's momentum. It pretty active with over 1300 users. Then we started up the FB Group.. and I redirected all traffic from the page to the new group.... Your Welcome.
@  Stratuscaster : (03 February 2016 - 10:05 PM) I'd post in both AND in the forums - only way we can get them active again...
@  rustbucketbingo : (02 February 2016 - 10:48 AM) Sweet thanks man.

Trying to get emission testing and the tech is getting "not ready" codes. I had the battery out replacing some wiring and was thinking this is what knocked me out. I suppose I need to drive the car a while, but how long is long enough to get the computer "ready" for emission testing?? I have no owners manual and my repair manual hasn't yielded the info.

Thanks!

"Not ready" could indicate an ECU failure as well, in which case no amount of time would fix it.

thats incorrect. not ready means you need to complete specific drive cycles for all of the emission controls to complete their self test. once that is done it will be ready. if you have $130 go to sears or auto zone and buy the innova 1003 code scanner. it will tell you wich sensors have completed the self test and wich ones have not. for the ones that have not, you can look in the owners manual and it will tell you how you need to drive to get it to do its test. normally 1-2 days of driving in your normal habits will put everything in the ready status.

the only problem is that every time you dissconnect the battery or use a scanner to erase the codes it gonna put it in the "OBD not ready" status until all the emmission control systems have finished self testing

Technically I was correct - if the ECU is bad, time would never correct it. A new ECU would. :lol:

But thanks for the much better answer and explanation. :whistle:

I definitely like the sound of this answer over Stratuscaster!! :whistle:
Ok, I'll run it through the motions and take it back. I get unlimited retests for my $25 fee, so I'll just use their machine until I pass.

By the way, I'm a cloud newb. I picked this 96 up a few weeks ago for a great deal from a family friend. So far, total investment is under $300 and hoping to run this baby for many miles.

Thanks for the help guys!
