I have a 1996 Jaguar XJS 6cyl. I can not pass the inspection, because the technicians get a constant “Monitor Not Ready”
I have been to a handful of mechanics (including the dealership!) and they do not know. Yes, I have had this issue for 3+ years now, posted on numerous jag forums, etc.
The monitors that are not ready include:
O2 Sensor -Not Ready
Secondary Heat Sensor- Not Ready
Evaporation System- Not Ready
I have done the drive cycle for the car (It is a very cumbersome procedure but I have done it multiple times, still no change). Also I have put over 35k on the car over a period of 3 years and the car still wont go ready on these codes. Each year I have to go through a month long process to get a waiver so I can renew my registration. I only need 2 of these codes to go ready (state of NC allows 2 not ready codes on 96-01 vehicles).
I would appreciate any help.
