What is the engine code?

Almost any part store will be able to read and clear codes. depending on what the code is, the light may stay off long enough to get an inspection.

I dont know where you live but its an automatic fail if the check engine light does not work...blown bulb or tampered with in fact its against the law and fineable if you tamper with any part of the emissions system including removing the bulb.The first thing they do is look for the check engine light to illuminate with the key on engine off...fix your problems.

The power source for the scanner is the same as the cig lighter.

As for your codes p1131 and 1151: Ford - Lack Of Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 Switches - Sensor Indicates Lean

Last week I had the very same catalyst, evap and ECG codes come up on my 1999 Mercury Mystique which is like a Ford Taurus. A friend was able to find a hole or leak in the hose connected, replaced it and it runs fine. I havent run it a full and straight 50 miles yet to clear the check engine light but that repair alone changed the entire way the car was poorly driving. Im sure that hasnt fixed all the probs but thats a good starting point.

My 1999 Ford F150 wont pass inspection because the "service engine soon" light is on. Isnt there a reset button I can hit to resolve this, so I can at least get it inspected.

You would have to get it on a diagnostic machine to have it turned off, cost about $25 to be honest you could just take the bulb out until after the inspection, thing is mostly they come on for no valid reason, its just another way the car makers squeze money out of us.

hope that helps
