I have a1999 Chevy Tahoe. I need it smogged but there are three things that are keeping it from passing. (1) Catyalyst status (2) Secondary air status (3) EGR status. What can I do to get one of these to show complete?

SOURCE: 2000 Daewoo, check engine light is on. How to turn

hate to tell you this,but park next door to your test site,get out and disconnect your battery for about 30 secs. when you reconnect it,it puts your engine into an "open loop" mode, for about 25-50 miles,and while in the loop,that annoying light wont come on. you still need to goto auto zone and have them pull the codes to tell you whats going on to cause the light to come on,but this trick will get ya your inspection sticker.

SOURCE: check engine light/2003 toyota CE

I have a 2005 Camry that has this as a 'feature'. the check engine light comes on after a few thousand miles to indicate that the oil has to be changed. Even if you change the oil, the light comes on unless you reset it. If this is also applicable to your Corolla, check your manual for exact instructions. I always have to look up how to reset it. It is a combination of turning your key in the ignition and holding the odometer reset button. I have to do this every so often. Btw, if this is the cause of your check engine light, it is only meant as a reminder to you, there is nothing wrong with the car.

SOURCE: 1996 doge intrepid wont pass emission test because IM monitors ar

Just maybe your O2 sensors are not operating properly. They may be requiring your engine to heat them up to get upper temperature readings but not lower. You can easily diagnose these and all other sensors and problems by purchasing a Hains manual at your local Auto Zone or Advance auto store which will greatly aide you in diagnosing all your auto needs. And the fault symptom index at the beginning of the book will ease your troubles with professional one on one advice with step by step instructions. Its like having your own ASE certified mechanic at your finger tips. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2001 300M. Engine Check Light stays on.

Have you had it reset and it still comes on? there are 8 different systems that need to be monitered, just because it passes emissions doesnt mean you dont have a problem, have someone run the obd2 scanner on it to pull your codes, if nothing comes up , have them cleared and see if the light comes back on.

I have a check engine light with a code P0013: cam shaft circut. Will this pass an emissions test?


Most probably the system will not pass the emission test as it is related to air and fuel supply system. The problem relates high and low voltage supply to cam circuit. If high voltage is supplied the light will come on and you may not be able to pass the emission test.

Take it to autozone or another place like it and have them read the codes and tell us what they are.

2004 Sebring failed the emissions testing


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.

Cannot get the 2001 Hyundai Elantra to pass the emissions test as the light stays on. When we shut it off, it will come back on after a few miles.


You need to have your check engine light checked to see what the code errors are and repair the problem so that it will pass smog. The check engine light is on telling you that something is wrong with the vehicle.
