    Hey everyone!! Maybe someone can help me out. The other day I went to get my truck inspected in NJ where I live. I ended up failing due to the DMVs system not being able to connect to my ecu. I have a obd2 scanner and plugged it into the port. I was able to connect along with getting live data. Anyone have any idea what’s going on?

    Remains to be seen I bought the tires and wheels the rest came along
    How many times did they try removing and reconnecting??

    Sometimes a little corrosion on the truck side will cause a Can Not Connect issue.

    It does not take much to cause a poor connection.

    While your device or devices work fine.

    A little Electrical cleaner can work wonders. Protect your eyes.

    Good Luck!

    sounds like their equipment is the problem. Can you get it inspected at a different location?
