One full second by second, or weasel check as some know it as. Then two more second by seconds, but without running the whole ASM portion. I just saw it say "Purging files - Second-by-second" when it connected to the VID. Third one today in about six smogs, two of those being TSI. Must be the next one under the radar.
Its actually been EVERY ASM test. I must just have missed the other one. After every ASM it says saving second by second. Then at the VID it says sending second by second record. How awesome. Like I said it still does the "quick pass" though which is kind of weird.
Id say fairly quick. Probably quicker than BAR wants me to. I do my most of my visual while the machine is connecting to the VID and doing its thing. So probably the 10-15 minute mark if its OBDII. You think that may have triggered it?
k20si, what area are you in? Maybe they're just collecting data from certain areas. It happened all day yesterday and just did my first smog today and its still going on. So idk. Not too worried about it.
BAR has been known to set up cameras across the street from any shop. Across the street there is a 7-11 and lots of traffic, so I make sure to keep. My back to the door . As for weasel checks , I do not mind them just a bit annoying cause they take longer.
if the machine runs all the way and you see second by second on the communication screen, you know the vehicle was randomly run all the way. I think this is just for statistical data, and to see how many restarts techs do
