oh they are reaching with that one how did the module effect emissions sounds like some bullshit I had a wierd one like that It was a 2003 gmc full size truck with a sticker in the door that said it vechicle has be modified with a hypertech module the kind you plug it the cpu like a scan tool you cant see anything it just like reprograms everything I just failed that shit told him to set it back to factory settings and remove the sticker thanks for the heads up anyone could of missed that.
Are these also know as performance chips? So what you are saying is you don't just unplug the device from there obd two port ? WE must fail it even though we just unplugged it?
Now the sticker on the door , Did it state it had been reprogrammed? I am just Leary as to the visual difference between a mandatory ( usually it is a dealership recall) reflash and an aftermarket illegal one. Any suggestions or tips would be ever so helpful ! Thanks smog fam.
I fail cars with the OBD2 scanner that some customers leave in place. First question I ask them is why its hooked up? You do realize that constitutes a fail, right? Tampering with computer programming.
Next thing I do is, test the car as is and, fail it for monitor status.
I failed one like that last year. The PCM is on the firewall, and this one clearly had something extra sandwiched between the PCM and one of the connectors. No EO# = fail.
Bears, what year? PCM on firewall sounds Pre obd two. In other words anything that is near the obd two port or PCM that looks connected or attached to it w/o eo#s is a automatic fail? would you please tell me if that applies to obd one also?
I am no longer employed at that shop.. In fact less than two weeks after this happened I was already at my new shop. . But knowing the owners.. I gotta feeling they will try to re-coup the money from me that the BAR hit them with. . Is that possible???
What do you mean you were not fined? Never heard of them waving the fine in a conferance meeting. If they waved the fine something is seriously wrong with the UC car to start with. Did you get copies of the under pictures? If what you are telling us is true, I would get a lawyer and fight it.
