Have you tried a search in the Midwest Regional and site wide? The peeps in Chicago were many and really active on here in the past. They might have posted lots of info on the emission checks.
Did you ever figure out the problem?Hey Guys,
so here is whats going on with my car, I have had the car for the last year and it is now time to take it in for emissions, I live in Chicago the worst possible state because of emissions testing laws. I have now been rejected 3 times. The first time I took the car in I had a stage 1 pcm on it so the results on the 1st test were expected since I cant pass in Illinois with a stage 1. The other 2 times I had the a stage 0 PCM that I bought from ebay programmed to my vin and the results were the same. I drove the car for 2 weeks with the stage 0 before taking it in. Today I went to the dealer got the pcm reflashed and once again there all coming back not supported on my OBD2 Scanner.
