At the shop I use it depends on who does the inspection. If it's the inspection Nazi he does the visusal & u r fukced . On the weekends he isn't there & it's a free for all!

is this from my 02 sims? so the DME is leaving the code in limbo?

We all know by now that my 02 sims work, as in keeping the service engine light off. The monitor as incomplete I suspect that OBD stations might flag it. I have verified that all systems are in a "ready" state using my 02 sims on my car.

I can happily work with anyone who has issues until we get a solution.

This guy is the ****. I am confident i will get this worked out, and recommend to anyone needing that pesky light out because they work like a charm.

Thats what I thought to. It seams like one size doesn't fit all, some cars have a tune and got a weird mixture code, while now others have no CEL but 02 sensor monitoring is not in the complete stage. But I'm going to try my best and work though it, before giving in the towel. Its a shame no one is local to expedite it

Well, luckily I can have 2 not ready in NY from 200 and under

and if o2 heater circuit and o2 sensor are 2 different monitors, then looks like the sims worked perfect for me.

Super bump........


Once the warm weather comes around, I'll be registering my car in NY. It's registered in FL now. I have active headers, no cats, so will not pass inspection. Need to start figuring out what to do to pass, o2sims etc... So bumping to get some info on how to get the ball rolling.
