Ah, but I didn't even KNOW that this error existed, as there was no engine light and nobody had warned me prior.

Plus, even if I had cleared it, I would still have had to wait for the FTP cycle to be completed, so that the monitors were filled (as California will fail you if too many monitors are not ready).

So that's why I'm warning the OP (I don't want him to have to pay twice for two inspections, like I did, because of a bogus failure).

Luckily, the bogus failure afforded me the opportunity to check emissions under two gasoline conditions (so I got 'something' out of my money paid for the bogus results):
Please read the suggested threads and add value, either by pictures or by descriptions, so the next person stands on your shoulders.
