Most common cause for this is the fuse that powers the OBDII connector is also on the accessory or cigar lighter fuse circuit and loses power when that fuse blows

OBD stands for on board diagnostics.it could either be a connector problem or a computer problem.take it to your local parts store and have them hook up a tester for free.if the computer is dead take it back to the dealer it should still be under warranty.thanks for using fixya.

The OBDII / OBD2 connector is 18" from the center of the center console.

You will need to purchase an OBDII scanner/reader to read these codes.

The alternative method is get a OBD2 cable and a laptop + software to pull the codes.

===
An inexpensive OBD2/CAN bus reader around $75-$120 is a good start.

Did the inspector mention anything about drive cycle or lack of stored readyness fields?

Please email on why it fail. You can append more info by click the button on TOP RIGHT of this page.

You most likely have a blown Auxilliary Power Outlet fuse. (Happens all the time) The Auxilliary Power Outlet fuse also powers you Data Link Connector (DLC). If the DLC has no power, the computer scanner will not communicate with the engine computer.
Check Fuse #7 (25 Amp) in the instrument panel fuse block. (See diagram)

Obd not working 2006 chevrolet malibu maxx unable to have car inspected


OBD2 works for getting codes causing check engine light.
Cannot communicate to NYS DMV to receive inspection.
It will pass inspection. No check engine lights or codes. Problem is communication with inspection machine.

I still do not know the answer to the problem.

Turn you ignition switch to the on position ,does the CK ENG Lite appear, if yes this is a good indication. Your DLC (diagnostic link connector) should have battery voltage at pin 16 and ground at 4 and 5,If you can verify that your vehicle has this working order then its there problem and not yours

Can you put a straight pipe on 1999 chevy malibu to fix the block cat converter problem?


Sure, it'll fix the blockage issue but I wouldnt do it because a) it IS illegal to mess with emissions control equipment, and b) you will fail your inspection if your state requires it.

Did not pass state inspection (vehicle)


First the fault codes,
U110C is No Fuel Level Bus Message
U0155 is No Cluster Bus Message.
Unfortunatly you have to be able to communicate with the instrument cluster with your scanner to diagnoise and I do not think an aftermarket scanner can do this.

Emissions test


Most of the Smog testers need to use the speedometer for testing since they have to test your vehicle emissions at 15mpg, 25 mph, etc. So you will likely need to get that fixed before your testing
