I never heard of this issue before.


What they're talking about is the readiness monitors. They all have to be set for your car to pass. To get them to set keep your gas tank between 3/4 and 1/4 full. No more and no less. Drive normally for about one week. The go back to inspection. You'll be all set. HTH. -Jim
