    My sister just finally passed inspection with her 2002 Elantra. Same exact problem and the sensor was replaced twice. Here's what you need to do. I know it doesn't make sense but I found it in a tech bulletin. You need to remove the alternator bracket that connects to the block as well as the engine ground and body grounds near the battery. Clean them off with a wire brush and also clean off where they connect to the body of the car. Reconnect them and clear the engine light. My sister's finally passed after that. It did not pass for 2 years until this was done.
