Default 1684 code - how long til it clears itself?

How long does it take the 1684 code to clear itself?

I need to have my car inspected (NY State) and they won't pass it if they think I pulled the neg battery cable to clear fault codes.

Just clear it your self and try to pass it...that's what I would do. How can they know if is no code? I get that code all the time because I always disconnect then battery when I'm working on my car... which is very often

How to you clear the p1684 code? I don't have a DRB scan tool. Just a reader.

You can try unplugging the battery for a few minutes....mine doesn't show after that BTW do you get a check engine light?

No, no light. I just changed the p/s pressure sensor cause I was getting the 0551 code. Now that's gone but I have the 1684 cause I disconnected the battery. That's what makes it go on, right? Cause the battery was disconnected within last 50 starts? Do I have to start the car 50 times go get it to go away, or is there a certain amount of mileage and it will go out?

Just drive the car for a few days before getting it inspected. As long as there are no other fault codes you won't have any issues passing.

As XtrmDC2 already posted; take off the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes. That will reset the computer and clear all stored codes.

except the code he has is for a disconnected battery... Only solution is to drive the car for a few days to be sure the computer registers all sensors are working properly, then get it inspected.

How would they know you pulled the battery cable to clear the fault codes. Is it against the law to tinker with your battery cables in N.Y.?

If you're really worried, pull the battery cables, then clean the terminals. Then if they ask--before they pull your fingernails out--tell them you had a starting problem due to corroded battery cables.

Ah, to live in a place where the government is afraid of the people ....
