OBD fault codes
2000 Acura Integra-GSR

I have a 2000 integra-GSR 4 door. The vehicle failed CA smog functional test. The check engine light stays illuminated after having replaced the downstream O2 sensor, and attempting to clear the code with a code reader computer. What else could cause this code?

RE: OBD fault codes
What was the exact code number?

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.

RE: OBD fault codes
Ct also has a functional emissions test. Basically if the dash light is on and the car is OBD-II (96 and newer) you flunk.

Now, if the dash light is on then there's a problem. Get us the exact code (as stated above) and we'll see if we can help.

Secondly, I'm sure California is similar to Ct in the respect that they also look at all of the ECM functions during a test so if you have recently reset the ECM (turned the dash light off) and have not driven several hot / cold cycles over several days, then many of the systems show as "not ready" and you flunk again.

Again, get us the exact trouble code and maybe we can sort this out for you.

The code is P0141

RE: OBD fault codes
That is a code for the heater circuit in the system. It could be a wiring concern somewhere. Here is a test for it.
