I purchased a car and the registered owner told me because the car was legally registered I would not need to smog the vehicle

Check all vacuum lines, egr and Pcv vlv and all the other junk that doesn't look like it belongs there. If you hear a hissing, it's a loose vacuum line.
Need to know why light is on but you could just disable it.

The ?check engine? light came on, what does this mean? Is it serious? i am having a problem passing my California smog test (the car failed the hc portion of the test), is this engine light related? a...

You will never pass a smog test if a check engine light is on. The light being on says you failed before they did anything to your vehicle. Take the vehicle to your local autozone. Autozone will scan the vehicles computer and get the codes that are causing the issue, and they will do it for free. After you make the repairs, you will need to get the computer reset. Autozone will also reset it for you for free.

1996 Nissan Maxima GXE Fail Smog Check Due To ECM System Failure

There is no way to fix this issue according to my Nissan Dealer Service Manager. The monitors will not run and therefore the vehicle will not pass smog. If you need assistance from California's SMOG authority they are called "The Referee" and you can call them at 1-800-622-7733.

Not a solution: This is my problem...
I needed to get my car smogged, but the check engine light was on. Took to to a local smog station that had replaced a sensor for me in the past in order to pass smog. They could not fix it. Put car in dealership garage for repairs and to date, the transmission module sensor (computer) went out and the ignition sensor was out also. The mechanic replaced both and now the code P1702 comes up. What does that code mean? My car still won't pass smog....
