I failed inspection today...

I failed today because I had my battery d/c yesterday when installing my AEM CAI and apparently that reset the ECU and it's "not ready". Also because I have those blue silverstar turn signal light bulbs. The ones that look blue, but when lit they are amber! On the package it says that they are 100% legal in all 50 states, and yet I failed. There were about 6 people who worked there disputing if it was legit or not. Half of them thought it was okay, and the other half siad it wasnt. So they took a white piece of paper and shinned the light on that, and it was amber. But then the head guy looked into the light, got all close and everything, and siad "uh oh, its green... fail him." F*CK that. I had it out with them big time. Even though I still would have failed even if the lights were alright. Its just the fact that they had the gall to say that it wasn't ... GRRR I hate Jersey.

be thankful you dont live in CA wher ewe have wonderful rules that can fail a 100% stock celica smile

aparently your headlights have to be a certain height from the ground and a 100% stock celica is like 1/4" too low.

any type of lower and you're very illegal. lol my teamate got a ticket for that once. ( they completely missed the supercharger too rofl )

when you have ur ecu reset, you cant inspect it. you should drive it for 2 days minimum til they can inspect it. as for ur lights, i dont know if there illegal or not, but there is a certain number you can call to ask for ur local laws if its legal or not.

Ok I have to ask. What's up with all these inspections? How often do you guys have to get your car inspected? The only time in canada you have to get it inspected, is if it's from out of province and you want to insure it in the new province, or if it's over 10 years old & changing hands. Do you have to get inspected every year in the USA? Crazy.

if the inspection looks for anything that isn't working or might not work in future...then why do not pass you for having an afterarket Intake on there thumbsdown

i dont get it...mostly they look for safety and emmisions...so why is the Intake a bad factor confused

The Intake isnt the bad factor, but the fact that I disconneted my battery to install it on sunday... is. I didnt know this, but disconnecting the battery resets the ECU and I failed because the results came back as "Not Ready" And apparently it falls under two sections, so I failed two things. Then the turn signals were the 3rd thing.

inspection is different by each state. some will require to have full inspection that charge up to $70. some states only reqiure emission and charge $14 and good for 2 years. it's weird down here...
