OBD II Drive Cycle for 96 Maxima


The CEL light on my future '96 Maxima was reset today(relplaced the faulty knock sencor that was illuminating the CEL). The smog tech mentioned that the car(OBD) has to go thru some kind of drive cycle before it checks all the systems for proper functionality. It seems smog can't be done until the drive cycle is complete. What is the typical drive cycle for a '96 maxima GXE?

Thanks in advance.

I have heard anything from a days worth of wait to 2 weeks worth.

The ecu is always learning so there really isn't a cycle period per se...Just on the safe side I'd give it 2 or 3 days but you might not even need that.
