So what is the fix for this?? Im guessing a reflash of the ecm to one with the egr turned on?^^^^THIS^^^^
We have been getting consistent phone calls from our customers in CA asking about this very subject. It sounds like the inspection stations and procedures have changed this year. The ECM monitors items like egr on the 6.0L and if it does not complete the self test, it will have a "Readiness Monitor Not Complete" warning which NOW will fail in CA.
We ,up here in Ontario Canada have the same " E TEST " procedure (s) depending on the
registered weight of the truck . Our 2 door reg box 6.0 has the snap test and they check
for CEL operation and codes . Our CCSB is registered over 8000 lbs and requires a commercial test which is opacity plus ecm monitoring while being watched live by the
government via camera . They check the CEL operation and scan for codes . Then the
tester pins the motor to the rev limit 8 times . THIS IS JUST THE PRE TEST ! After which
they do it all again for the actual test .
So for a total of 16 complete reamings your motor had better be in good shape .
That's not all . We also have many provincial "cars" driving around with enviromental cops that can pull you over and perform a roadside test . They do a visual for components and an OBD2 connection and check
for system functions like EGR .
As for the actual test were they beat the crap out of your motor , if it pitched a rod etc. , I'm sure they would say
" too bad , so sad and have a nice day "
All emission related components reinstalled and fully functional, tuner/programmer removed and drive the truck for a few days. This "drive cycle" should reset those Readiness Monitors to a "Complete" status.So what is the fix for this?? Im guessing a reflash of the ecm to one with the egr turned on?
we have had lots of rain the politicians arent admitting here too. they waste water and have done all they can to falsify the severity of this regular drought for political gain.Exactly. Don't know why anyone would choose to live there, for many reasons, but that's just me. Diesels are exempt from emissions here. :woot:
Oh, and it rained at least a little 19 of the 30 days last month. 6.7 inches of rain in June. Can wash the truck all day long!
exactly what i would like to know. tey cant just start breaking **** they arent about to pay to fix...
say what? who drove through a toll? hnoes: no way one of these semi trained monkeys is going to drive my truckI would be livid. I was mad when they drove through a toll and I had to pay it...
I'm pretty sure if the tester sees any code, they can fail it. I run a Hypertech programmer. I took the truck back to stock a couple of days ahead of time so the P1000 would have time to clear.so you guys can't pass a Cali test with a P1000 until the drive cycles and parameters are met ?
I am pretty sure my CTS will clear a P1000

As in on vacation or short business trip? None that I'm aware of. If you're running around rolling coal, they can stop you for that, I believe.Is there any laws or regulations on people who drive into CA who are tuned and all that good stuff? (visual inspections etc.)
Yup like a vacation or a short business trip.As in on vacation or short business trip? None that I'm aware of. If you're running around rolling coal, they can stop you for that, I believe.
