2005 Ford Mustang GT Question: How to complete a 2005 Ford Mustang GT drive cycle.

 

Question

Mustang Suzie, West Haven, CT, June 05, 2014, 09:59

I need to pass my CT state emissions test for my registration, but 4 readiness monitors are not engaging. It's mostly garage kept, has 14,000 miles, has a big K&G cold air intake, and the previous owner had a super chip tuner installed. Recently the battery died so I was told I needed to drive it more so that the CAT, O2 sensor, and EVAP, etc... can engage. After driving over 200 miles so far no dice.
1. What's the exact/proper drive cycle for a 2005 Mustang GT so that the monitors will come alive?
2. Do would suppose the super chip have disabled the monitors in anyway?
3. If I can't get the monitors to engage, would I need to reverse the tune back to the factory tune?

Thanks in advance

    Great news, I read the comments posted within this forum on the subject of getting the monitors to a ready status, I followed some of the instructions regarding completing a proper drive cycle, and I PASSED my emissions test this week!
    Thanks for the educated insights.

    No problem. Had only one who couldn't get it to work. Good luck.
