Long time member, Cannot pass smog (SES). Anyone have a OBDII near So-Cal?

Hey guys, long story short my Smog is due and I cannot pass because of my SES light. It happened to JUST pop on a few days ago right around the time smog is due of course

My last SMOG was a nightmare I had to spend over $1000 in repairs to pass and go to court 3x for extensions. Eventually the state kicked in and put me through some program to pass.

I've been a member for almost 9 years. I've helped meet in person a few members on here a few times to work on ea/ others cars. I also wrote the DIY guide for rolling fenders on here. I'd be very grateful if someone could help me figure out these SES error code!

I live in Irvine CA off Walnut/Culver. I'm also attaching my cell & email:

Feel free to txt/call/email. Thank you!
