    Possible Solutions The P0002 is an OBDII generic code, but almost none of the vehicle manufactures use it. If you are getting this code, make sure you are using the correct OBDII code scanner for your vehicle's make and model. Check Fuel Supply with pressure meter Ensure the fuel pump is working (Check fuses and power at pump) Check that fuel return line is working

    Your vehicle is equipped with an OBD II computer AND a link to connect OBD II computer to a Smog Check Analyzer or Data Scan Tool (available
    at most auto part stores).There are two types of codes, bad codes and good codes. The good codes are the "Readiness Flags". These Readiness Flags
    indicate that certain emissions systems which the OBD II computer has been monitoring have PASSED the test, indicating that those systems are
    working properly. Then there are the bad codes. The bad codes are actual "Trouble Code". These codes indicate that the OBD II computer
    has detected a problem with in the emissions system. The Trouble Code will specifically indicate the component and problem which was found.
    Newer vehicle's have very complex codes in the thousands.
    "Readiness Flags" do not cause the "Check Engine" light to illuminate, but may cause a vehicle to fail the smog test.
    In order to set all the proper "Readiness Flags" the OBDII system must complete at least one drive cycle (in some cases
    two or three). A drive cycle is a sequence of internal tests which the OBDII computer runs while your vehicle is being driven. This insures
    all emissions systems are functioning properly. Only then will your vehicle pass the smog inspection. A drive cycle usually requires one
    week of driving.

    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.
