    better off finding out WHY it's showing and address that instead of just resetting the light.

    I know what it is, but it's gonna cost 600 bucks to fix it (some fan issue but not gonna hurt the car) and I just have to get it reset to get emissions done. :hsd:

    go to autozone....rent OBDII code reader. Go to parking lot...plug in to socket (within 3 feet of drivers steering wheel, usually under by the pedals). Reset codes using code reader. Return for full deposit refund.

    correct.

    Right before you get to the emissions inspection station, pull over, shut off your truck and unhook the battery and hit the brakes, then proceed to the emissions. the code wont pop back up until probably another 7 miles or so.

    my understanding is that I&M will fail by doing that... Because it won't have the bad codes, but it will not have the good codes, either. They'll basically know you just reset it.

    no autozone does free checks...but they don't erase them...but they do rent them out. Just go there and erase.

    The Autozones around here do checks for free, just offer the guy a $20 to clear them while he's at it. Seriously, 9/10 of parts store workers are $7/hr kids who don't know jack about cars, nor care why you want it cleared :)

    Man, why didn't they just sue because they're providing parts to do repairs also? :ugh2:

    because plugging shit in to tell people the problem was easy money, you act like they want to do work.

    By the way, unplugging the battery worked (as far as it went)....now I have to drive it around for 80-100 miles for i to pass inspection.

    Fucking hell, it's almost worth it to get it re-insured in Florida just cuz they don't do the emissions bullshit....:mad:
