OK, thanks! It sounded like the moral equivalent of "bone yard".
So as to what the last holdup is ... you guys seem to have implied it's related to the scanner tools, but it's nothing dealer-related and the proper/latest software is already deployed.
My first guess is that they have a minor tweak to the programming to help reduce the CARB fines, so now they have people running around with the diagnostic tools updating 2,000 vehicles.
My second guess would be that there's a minor issue with the on-board programming and it's mis-reporting its version/ID so the diagnostic tool isn't properly registering that it's the diesel. Which I guess also implies running around and making updates to 2,000 vehicles, so first and second guesses are basically the same.
My other guess would've been they had to get some type of "re-approval" after modifying for the CARB failures, but it's already been stated that there's no regulatory holdup any more, so I guess that one is out.
Last guess would be that there's a problem with the connector that's causing issues when the scan tools are connected.
Maybe after my head gets back in the game after being dismayed over being sent to the "axle yard" I'll have more guesses.
