I understand that, I would still invest in a logger to see the issue and to make sure all sensors are reading prior to showing up for the inspection. Why did it set the CEL before?

Yea that's a good idea so I don't waste time. The CEL was for EVAP. It popped up on a morning that was very cold. Not sure if that had anything to do With it but it's never been back.

I have the same problem here in NC. We aren't allowed any check engine lights, and only two "not ready" codes. The "not ready" code for the evap sensor will not go away after a CEL is cleared until a preset number of cool down and warm up cycles has been completed. Aren't you running a return style fuel system on that TT setup? I ask b/c the leak detection pump that is part of the evap system will probably sense a leak on your fuel system if its been converted from the factory returnless system, over to a return style system. I gave up on trying to get rid of the not ready code for my evap system and concentrated on the other two "not ready" codes and finally got the car to pass. Total pain in the balls. Find out what your other not ready codes are, they might be easier to fix than the evap.

Dave:

what was that comment you made last month about snow in Ohio, we do have a lot of that, especially right now, but, we do not have Clyde and Jethro running our cars down the street - it is hard to believe they are legally required to drive a private individuals car.

Assuming you are starting from scratch (you've never been there), and there is a state mandated braking test, or "road worthiness" test.

Pick a quick lube size place, where they they can't drive off so far you can't see your car.

Pick one that appears to have enough real estate to do the brake test on site. It only takes a few feet by the book to do the test.

When you hand them the keys, immediately go sit in the passenger seat. If they say that's a problem, you have choices:

What I would do...

-> Tell them you are no longer authorizing them to inspect your car, and that they need to immediately return your keys.

Alternative 1...

-> Tell them it's just for the road test, and you'll get out before they pull in the bay. If still a problem, see above.

Alternative 2, which I did with my buggy once. It does work...

-> Inform them that you are legally authorized to ride in the vehicle, and if they refuse to proceed with the inspection, that you'll report them to the state, as they cannot refuse to inspect your vehicle. Yes, they can flunk it (don't ask me how I know this... ), but they as a state inspection center have to initiate the inspection process unless you do something criminal or they deem the car is unsafe.

They don't drive my car at all. I pull it into the bay, they plug in their machine and when it says all is good, they change the sticker, I pay the bill and drive off.

Unlucky, I don't have inspection or emissions testing where I live. It's the bee's knees.

I don't see the point in yearly inspections. Get your state laws changed.

If we had yearly inspections, and my car got wrecked at an inspection station - I would
be there. But my house is only a block from the Capitol building.

I'm sure they would change the laws right there on the spot too.

And I don't consider a 3 inch crack wrecked.

So -- has your car ever been made safer by an inspection? - Have you ever
known an inspection to help anyone?
What's the total cost associated with yearly inspections? Including hassle and time lost.

I agree it sucks and not needed for 99% But there are those dipshits who would never change their brakes unless it was caught in inspection.

Any car body repair work done on a viper diminishes its resale value, take that into consideration before you sign off on being satisfied with the repair. if it gets recorded on CARFAX ,
your Vipers resale value will go down at least 5000 dollars. make sure you get compensated for that now.

Does it matter? It's the law here, and non compliance results in a ticket that is typically in excess of the cost of compliance.

It WAS the law here, and it got overturned.

If you live in California - you are probably stuck dealing with it. If not, maybe there is hope. That's all I'm sayen
