    A fun thread above making a key point that could help anyone, with say any emissions device or AECD & that is responsible or damaged by or causes damage to another system, could be a free or a reimbursable repair now huh & if documented by the right licensed professional to seek consideration?

    Is it possible that a VCDS system could be reimbursed & if documented to a specific VIN record, hmmm I wonder being these systems seem to share interrelated subsystems that qualify for extended AECD's and share a network or MIL call ups & are not, I repeat, are "NOT" OBD2 addressable with a standard CAA/CARB specification generic scanner forcing a purchase of a pass-thru device or tester such as VCDS?

    It would be an interesting question to ask when any reason the MIL comes on & scanned with VCDS as part of your documentation & say for a engine or a transmission AECD and any part of a zero emissions system such as EVAP arises is warrant-able now isn't it?


    SUBJECT: Emissions Warranty and Manufacturer Responsibilities under the Clean Air Act Dear Manufacturer:



    SUBJECT: Emissions Warranty and Manufacturer Responsibilities under the Clean Air Act

    Dear Manufacturer:

    Over the past several months EPA has received numerous inquiries from the public regarding emissions warranty claims which have been denied. This letter is not intended to establish or alter any legal requirements, but to remind manufacturers of their responsibilities under the Clean Air Act and EPA regulations to honor emissions warranties and of the limited circumstances under which warranty claims may be denied.We would also like to update the EPA contact information which is required to be included in the owner’s manual/warranty booklet per 40 CFR 85.2109(a) (6). The following provisions apply to light duty vehicles and light duty trucks.

    State Warranty Requirements Which Differ from the Federal Emissions Warranty EPA has received several reports from vehicle owners stating that their warranty claims have been denied based on the age or mileage of their vehicle exceeding the California year/70,000 mile warranty period.State motor vehicle emissions warranty provisions are in addition to, and do not void or eliminate, the federal emissions warranties under 207 of the Act. A vehicle that is within the federal warranty period and subject to regulations issued under 202 is the reforecovered by the federal emission warranties, notwithstanding valid adoption by a state of separate warranties. Under this situation, the Federal and California warranty provisions are concurrent, and all vehicles, even those sold in California, are subject to Federal warranty provisions. Therefore the Federal 8 year or 80,000 mile warranty period for the specified major emission control components applies to all vehicles, including those sold in California.

    Vehicles with Salvage or Branded Titles EPA has received several reports from vehicle owners stating that their warranty claims have been denied solely based on the fact that the vehicle has a salvage title.While EPA acknowledges that a manufacturer is not responsible for damage to an emissions related component caused by improper use or maintenance, EPA’s regulations prohibit a manufacturer from denying an emissions performance warranty claim based on improper use or maintenance which is not relevant to the reason the vehicle failed (40CFR 85.2104(h)(3)). Additionally, as stated in EPA’s guidance on allowable maintenance (CD-85-11), EPA’s long-standing policy is that a manufacturer may only deny a defect warranty claim if it can show that the part failure was due to improper or neglected maintenance and not due to a defect. This principle applies to improper use(e.g. an accident or flood damage) as well.

    The fact that a vehicle has a salvage title, by itself, is not evidence that a defect or emissions failure was caused by previous damage outside the responsibility of the manufacturer. Therefore a manufacturer may not deny an emissions warranty claim based solely on the fact that a vehicle has a salvage title. The following restrictions apply to all light duty vehicles/trucks whether or not they have a salvage or branded title.a) Defect Warranty A manufacturer may not deny an emissions defect warranty claim because of previous damage (e.g. an accident or flood damage), unless the manufacturer is able to show that part failure was due to the previous damage and not due to a defect.b) Performance Warranty A manufacturer may not deny an emission performance warranty claim because of previous damage (e.g. an accident or flood damage) which is not relevant to the reason the vehicle failed. In other words, a manufacturer must show a direct causative effect between the previous damage to the vehicle and the failure of the vehicle to comply with emission standards.

    Cost of Diagnostics EPA has received several reports from vehicle owners stating that they were charged for the cost of diagnostics for a warranty claim.The regulations of 40 CFR 85.2106(g) state: “The vehicle manufacturer shall incur "all costs" associated with a determination that an emission performance warranty claim is valid.” This means the owner cannot be charged a diagnostic fee related to a valid warranty claim.


    Warranty Enforcement:

    EPA would like to remind manufacturers that failing or refusing to comply with the terms and conditions of the emissions warranties is a prohibited act under 203(a)(4)(D) of the Clean Air Act and may be subject to a civil penalty of to up $37,500 for each offense.Acts constituting such a failure or refusal shall include, but are not limited to, the following1) Failure to honor a valid warranty claim,(2) Performance of a warranty repair in a manner which cannot reasonably be expected to allow the vehicle to meet applicable emission standards for the remainder of its useful life(3) Failure of a manufacturer to reimburse a dealer or other designated agent for performance of a warranty repair(4) Charging the vehicle owner for any portion of a valid warranty claim including any related diagnostic fee.(5) Failure of a manufacturer to supply a part necessary to perform a warranty repair within a reasonable period, unless such failure is for a reason not attributable to the vehicle manufacturer or the warranty repair facility (for a performance warranty claim, a manufacturer generally must supply a part necessary to performs warranty repair within 30 days (40 CFR 85.2111(b)(4)).EPA would also like to remind manufacturers that if a warranty claim is denied, an owner can request a written explanation of the basis upon which the claim is being denied. For a performance warranty claim, failure to notify an owner within 30 days (unless the delays attributable to the vehicle owner or events which are beyond the control of the vehicle manufacturer or the repair facility) shall result in the vehicle manufacturer being responsible for repairing the warranted items free of charge to the vehicle owner.

    EPA Contact Information:

    Please include in each vehicle’s owner’s manual or warranty booklet an explanation thatan owner may obtain further information concerning emission warranties or that anowner may report violations of the terms of the emission warranties by contacting:

    FACTS TO KNOW!

    CAA CARB EPA IM Readiness Monitor FRAUD FOD! and how to help detect it!

    VCDS or the OBD2 data as a generic scanner can or can't see is very important to consider and therefore limited to what is reported by a respective controller!

    You must pay close attention to block values and qualify a controllers ability to actually report data or as tested and which is helpful in identifying FOD!

    An example would be the ladder for readiness explained or for example:
    Such as logging boost requests, versus actual; If boost is being requested outside the scope or above the values in the RTFB the car is indeed modified!
    If car is being asked to request less boost this maybe due to someone trying to cheat installing a new turbo or waste-gate repair.
    If a car is actually making less or more boost on a mechanical gauge, however, reporting as specified tampering should be investigated in programming or a defeat device such as a resistor etc.

    There should be no substitution for cross checking the values with aid of the RTFB, a DVOM, Decade box or actual mechanical tests to diagnose and repair a condition & to only be verified by quality check of the JPPSG!




    Readiness: 0000 0000
    <<<< When this is seen set as always ready & after a DTC reset or without tests to qualify an AECD, that's indeed a problem!


    WHEN REVIEWING AN AUTO-SCAN!


    The first part of the repair or OBD2 diagnostic process & since it is impossible to know what is in every consumers car, we must as professionals become familiar with and first qualify the car tampered for FOD! & to see all the benefits that come with OBD to detect it?


    It'a as simple as this, if you have the above result & for any of these monitors set as zero, unless an unsupported test for the SMOG tier in the USA since some regions of world dont support readiness.
    It is impossible to
    achieve this before running any of the AECD DCY tests & that are part of the required emissions tier, for example before even starting the engine and or immediately after a DTC reset, your car is indeed tampered and FOD! if the tests show as ready.

    Some tuners are also deploying time clocks and EEPROM flip terminal 15 & to reset or to deploy on the next power up cycle too so watch for it.
    Tuners are also manipulating all MODES and for example 3, 7 or 9 CAL ID AND CVN data should be observed against VCDS in the VAG proprietary modes.




    NOTE:
    There are indeed tuners which will set readiness ready on the VAG side and negate doing it on the EPA CARB CAA OBD2 generic side........

    Example of what not to dismiss.

    A scan tool is not a substitute nor should it be relied on to perform "mechanical tests" or "work procedures" unless part of the written work procedure in the RTFB & or required during a calibration.

    Better than half the problems today with failure to diagnose a condition have become a reliance on OBD2 quasi tests with replacement of a component because it has a DTC and often mechanical or electronic DVOM tests or work operations are now being ignored or forgotten because of stupidity and laziness or too pay attention to basics or design and function familiarity of details!

    Mechanical tests in the end will always show the FOD too!

    WHY JPPSG?

    Why it's important to pay attention to type of emissions warranties and how it adds to coverage to related sub systems, such as an instrument cluster or climate controller for example & because the MIL resides there or is influenced by the AECD component?

    For example:

    This means you get a cluster that doesn't function one day right or AC for faulty climate controller that helps assist with alleged MPG savings technology , nothing zip? and the car meets the criteria for warranty extension & in any of the States that subscribe to comport with the CARB conformity, are indeed under warranty for a free diagnosis & repair?

    Even salvage or flood cars?

    California Emissions Warranty Laws


    California Emissions Warranty – Under the California Emissions Warranty, vehicles certified for sale in California, and those states like Vermont that have legally adopted California Emissions Standards and Warranty Provisions, have additional coverage beyond that required under Federal law. Under the California provisions, all emissions related parts are covered for 3 years or 50,000 miles*, and a vehicles specific list of more expensive emissions related parts is covered for 7 years or 70,000 miles*. In addition, the 8 year or 80,000 mile* coverage for the catalytic converter and engine control unit required by Federal law applies. Also, some models, designated as California Partial Zero Emission Vehicles (PZEV), have 15 year or 150,000 mile* emissions warranties covering essentially any component that causes the Check Engine Light to illuminate. These California Emissions Warranty provisions cover vehicles up to 14,000 pounds GVWR. * whichever comes first.





    I'm getting excited again!
    I wonder how this would apply to a "WET KESSY" or any "CONTROLLER" taking on water that is MIL related on the CALL UP?
