Probably the P-1000 code I copied this from a google search:

Potential causes of a P1000 include: The battery or PCM has been disconnected (Ford,Mazda) The diagnostic trouble codes have been cleared (Ford,Mazda) An OBD monitor concern occured before completion of the drive cycle (Ford)

If the battery has been disconnected or is low on power your system won't be able to run and store diagnostic results. I believe your car has to run two complete heat cycles before the pcm can run a diagnostic. The reason being is, the pcm wants to see if the issue is still present after a cool down, and it wasn't a fluke.

It doesn't have to be disconnected physically, just a bad connection or low battery can do it too. But either way, basically the car needs to be driven some more for it to be able to pick up any problems, if any.

That's a whole lot of sarcasm after waiting a whopping 1 hour and 41 minutes!

But that aside he was likely referring to DTC P1000 as suggested above. That is the I/M (Inspection/Maintenance) Readiness code. Its presence means that the various I/M monitor tests (mostly emissions related-cats, O2 sensors, EVAP, EGR, etc.) have not been completed.

This is often the result of the battery being disconnected however resetting the PCM to clear other codes can set P1000, as well as just an incomplete test for one of the monitored systems.

You need to get a scan tool on there are read mode 1 PID 01 to determine what system is not ready--read more about OBD2 PIDs here...

That guy (even if he really owns a Camaro) should read that lol. He would gain some knowledge.

Whether you like the the guy or not posting information for a legitimate question can still benefit yourself and other users and if someone really bothers you on here theres a option to ignore users, no reason or name calling when its prohibited in here and theres ignore options

My issue is after posting your confusion over what an inspector had told you--to wit:

You came back with a juvenile accusatory whine (a whopping 1 hour and 41 minutes later) chiding the whole group for not just getting up and jumping to your aid ASAP:

All for a trivial problem that 45 to 50 seconds of "Googling" could have resolved--BTW it would have helped a lot if you had understood what the inspector told you, and properly related it in your posting.

The people in this forum will and do bend over backwards to help one another, but frankly with an attitude like yours they are just as likely to tell you where to put it as offer any assistance. In short you need to be less confrontational and come to grips with the fact that the world does not revolve around you and your needs--and that whatever you "learned" from Fast & Furious and "Tunerz" magazine is a crock of crap.

Do some homework and understand what makes a V8 engine inherently superior, and what in general make engines work--once you have acquired that basic knowledge you will be able to answer most of the questions you have posed.

Oh, drop the silly rants too...

I disagree in that it serves to illustrate that posturing and posing are not the defining elements of this forum; nor do I believe anyone here wants to make them so.

Enthusiasts come here to seek and share information, anecdotes and "war stories" in a hospitable and enjoyable environment; and with an understanding that their brothers ans sisters are not just sitting around with bated breath waiting to bail some impatient dolt out of their current dilemma--most of us have actual lives of our own.

So IMHO, those who come here demanding immediate gratification and resolution of their particular issue, and start out by bemoaning the lack of same and in the process demeaning those who try to suggest and help, need to look elsewhere for their fulfillment...
