    haha inspection is due ... That's awesome

    Yeah I previsouly had a subaru legacy gt with an access port and I was able to draw/clear codes from there ---- that was a great purchase

    Haven't gotten into doing much with the cruze except commute to work -- and it's been great at that!!

    Is that what happened? Will have to look that up.

    If the AZ scanner can't read CAN, it's useless anyhow. A cheap CAN scanner with live data is $60-80. Well worth the money, just for stuff like this.
    This is a very good point. They aren't able to look up on every car. They weren't able to read the code from my 96 Honda. Doubt they will be able to read a CAN setup, but I bet they'll sell you a reader

    Re-seat the oil dipstick firmly, and re-seat the oil fill cap. Once that's done, unhooking the negative terminal on the battery for 15 minutes will clear the code. I hope your inspection isn't due for a while, though, since that resets all the emissions monitors.
    Yep.

    definately was the oil cap ... can't believe I over looked that --- code actually cleared by itself ... We ran a lot of errands yesterday with a lot of on/off with the car

    Thanks for the help guys!!

    Most CEL's will clear themselves after 50 or so miles.
