The dsm failed emissions because their computer could not fully connect with my ecu. There was continuity, but couldnt talk to the ecu. Im able to connect with my lap top fine. Im tuning with ECMlink v3 full. Any ideas what to do?
X2. I went to Naperville station waited an hour. They had same issue failed to connect. I then asked them to test on another machine and all I got was attitude. And they said fine but wait another hour. I said fuuuuuuuu. I took it to addison station passed no problemo. I would say if you laptop had issues as well then you could check fuse or wiring. But since you can connect try different station.Try a different emissions place.
Just as an FYI mine failed at autozone as well. But worked fine at addison station. I don't get the whole OBD II thing. I thought it was suppose to be universal. But I can tell you not all OBD II readers will read my wifes R350 Mercedes had to buy certain ones.Was just at the addison one lol. I stopped at autozone beforehand just to have them check to see if they caught anything on theirs. And they couldnt connect either. But I thought the guy was being a chicken shit and didnt want to touch anything.
FWIW the Joliet emissions place has a self serve terminal. Kinda like an atm machine for emissions testing. Worth trying.
The OP's issue seems to be different than what tuned Ford guys are running into. In your truck's case the tune would have turned the DTC's and certain monitors off in a way that showed enough of them as not supported so as to cause a test failure. I think the OP is having issues with the emissions computer linking to his ECU at all.I had my lightning tuned...had emmison test...vehicle didn't register as all systems were turned off. Had to put back to stock
