Re: failed emission test because check engine light wont...
You have to pull the front of the dashboard off, and take out the instrument cluster to get at it. If there ia an autozone near you, have them put a code scanner on the car, that will tell what is wrong.They don't charge anything to do it, and takes about 30 seconds.

Probably not a cheap fix. The car will not pass the test if the light is on during the test. The light is on when the computer has a problem that will affect emissions or performance. You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes then fix the problem. Once the problem is fixed and the code is erased, the light should stay off.
The check engine light issue could be a faulty dash bulb or consul. It looks like you could do worse than get your car checked out on a diagnostic consul.
Failing that, emissions failure is usually a fault of the engine not running at optimum. Is the air filter clean, air temperature sensors clean. Finally take it out for a good run to burn of any residues before checking emissions.
what year make model? first check if someone has removed the engine light bulb ... i hate to tell you but it sounds like your car is a accident re-built vehicle, and the person who fixed it parted it together, hence the computer wont connect to it
Why don't you ask the REAL question you want the answer to...I think we all know you are looking for the way to reach the check engine light to break it, not replace it! Who REPLACES the check engine light?? That's just retarded.
