i smogged a 1990 jeep failed first time for emissions the guy came back after he fixed it and it did pass but the machine never issued a cert because it didnt dail in. i looked it up it says pass but no cert i called bar they told me to redo it so no i have to call the guy back in and do the jeep for the 3rd time. i also notice that my machine will not dial in or out the the morning and when i close i talk to couple guys around me and they are telling me the samething but bar is saying he didnt not get any calls off issues like this lately wtf
This happened to us too. The explanation was that the car GP'd initially and for the same station to issue a certificate, the analyzer needed to communicate. It's how the analyzer is programmed I guess.
The same thing happened to me a few years ago on an old mini-van. I GP'd it, fixed it, and retested it. The retest had no communication, but the VIR history inside the EIS showed a GP, and the retest passed with no certificate, since the EIS needs dial-in permission for certifying a 'known' GP. There was a short explanation in the text box on the VIR. I re-initialized the modem and ran it a third time for the certificate.
