This continues the prior thread "Innova Code Reader first try"
regarding downloading stored codes with the Innova/Equus 3100
Vehicle: 2000 Sonata 6 cyl.
The car's computer is reporting back on all systems except two:
catalytic converter and oxygen sensor. The code reader displays
blinking icons "C" and "O", which mean that the monitors have not
been run or completed.
I called the code reader's manufacturer this morning. The tech
said that the car's computer won't give a complete result if the
car has not been put through the appropriate drive cycle. He
referred me to the Hyundai shop manual for a description of the
drive cycle. I can't find anything about a drive cycle on the
Hyundai tech web site. When I told Innova's technician that
Hyundai posts the complete shop manual on their web site, his
reply was, "If the drive cycle isn't in the manual, it's not a
I need to know the drive cycle sequence for each of these
monitors for my car. Where can I find this information?
This brings up another question: if the manual on the web isn't
complete, will I get a better manual if I buy the printed version
from the dealership? I assume that this is the same book that's
marketed by Helm -- is this correct? (Actually, two books,
including the electricals).
