Failed NY State Inspection
I have a 2001 that I just have finished some front end repairs and went to get my first NY State inspection (it previously was registered in CA).
I failed to pass, as their equipment could not communicate with the car. This puzzled me, as I have an Innova scan tool that I have been using, and it does communicate with the car. Had them try both ADL connectors (under the dash and back by the engine). Same thing...it stated that they could not communicate with the vehicle
Got home and plugged in my Innova scanner...and it connected right away. No DTC present. It passed most of the Inspection and Maintanence Monitors steps. There were three that were blinking yellow (EVA, AIR O2S), which was saying that the inspection was in process. Took and drove it for a while and was not able to get these three to go green (they stayed yellow).
I'm confused, as to why the NYS inspection machine could not communicate with the car. Since the Esprit 2001 is OBDII compliant...I would think that there is no unique equipment required for them to be able to commuicated with the car.
Do not know what is required to get the 3 I/M monitors to go green (EVA, AIR, O2S).
