Drive Cycle.. 2003 Honda Accord Coupe v6 EX

So i had a load of work done on the infamous transmission.. picked it up today.. took it for emissions.. and it failed because it said the OBD was not ready to determine the pollution stuff.. And that it needs to go through a Drive Cycle before it can determine this.. Does anyone no how many miles our Drive Cycle is so i can put some miles on it and get it back to emissions.. since its up Aug 23.. Much Appreciated

I would agree with the above 100-150 miles, during a drive cycle certain criteria and conditions have to be met and tests have to be completed.

Well a full drive cycle really depends on how long you drive the car in a trip, once the car meets certain enabled criteria and certain conditions and tests have to be run and completed. It usually takes 3 trips, the car has to reach operating temperature each time and then shut off and then repeated two other times. And once this is done a drive cycle is completed, it all depends on how much and how long you drive a day.

Found this by googl-ing "drive cycle", hope it helps:

Most OBD II ("On-Board Diagnostics II") diagnostic monitors will run at some time during normal operation of the vehicle. However, to satisy all of the different Trip enable criteria and run all of the OBD II diagnostic monitors, the vehicle must be driven under a variety of conditions. The following drive cycle will (theoretically) allow all monitors to run on (??) vehicle. (Note: Drive cycle specifics vary by vehicle!)
  • Ensure that the fuel tank is between 1/4 and 3/4 full.
  • Start cold (below 86F /30C) and warm up until engine coolant temperature is at least 160 F (typically requires at least one minute; up to 3 minutes).
  • Accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for five minutes.
  • Decelerate without using the brake (coast down) to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute.
  • Restart and accelerate to 40-55 MPH at 25% throttle and maintain speed for two minutes.
  • Decelerate with using the brake [or the clutch!] by coasting down to 20 MPH or less, then stop the vehicle. Allow the engine to idle for 10 seconds, turn the key off, and wait one minute.
