Wont pass smog due to check engine light is on

Trobleshooting / Wiring on 1998 Chevy truck needs smog done on it, it wont pass but no-one will tell you what the problem is. I'm sure it is one of the sensors. Also, have no high beams, blinkers don't work, hazard lights don't go on. Could all of this have anything to do with the check engine light? Need to find out whats wrong and how to fix it
anything would help thanks B

    You need everything on that list to pass inspection in likely every state. If you aren't good at electrical diagnosis, get a manual and go from there...If you need vehicle, bring it to a shop. They can do this faster.

The check engine light wont come on.it wont pass the smog test to license it till it does.


It is highly likely, on a vehicle that age, that the bulb is simply burned out for the CHECK ENGINE light. (Should be a T5, if I recall.)
If not, you may need to replace the ECU with a rebuilt. Before doing so, check the light circuit to verify that someone didn't unplug it (common practice when unscrupulous people are trying to sell vehicles that won't pass smog due to engine problems).

My 1999 kia sephia wont pass smog test


You will need to get it scanned and get the codes for the problem. If it failed the test due to emissions I would almost guarantee it will be your oxygen sensor or cat

My GMC 2003 Envoy failed smog test because of "the


The person running the test is an idiot. The OBDII test instrument is not capable of determining if there is a warning lamp failure. It is probably guessing based on voltage level, but lamp resistance does normally vary. The test is supposed to be done visually. Take it to someone else, and they will probably be more competent and pass your car.

Prerunner wont pass smog due to engine service light


Not positive on this so consider only. The o2 sensor is what actually tells everything else what is going on with emmission and everything else adjusts to what info it relays. The o2 is also subjected to extreme temps and cooling cycles. So, instead of spending money on no answer diagnostism give replacement of o3 sensor so consideratio. If you choose to replace, wd40 and let exhaust cool down. Good Luck.
