I really cant tell you if it will pass the smog test or not because the check engine light could be on because of a faulty Catalytic converter

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).

Turn off or rest check engine light to pass smog


It takes at least one "Good trip" stored in the computer before it will pass a smog check. Simply resetting the light did not fix the problem that caused the light to come on to begin with, and attempting to smog it will only result in a failed test.
You must address the fault first, then reset the system and drive upwards of 150 miles before a "Good trip" has been stored in the computer.

Why can't I pass smog check engine light won't come on


The smog check requires a visual inspection of your check engine light. It has to come on for a bulb check at startup to make sure it's working. But, the light must go out after starting the engine(it cannot stay on after the engine starts during a smog check). If the check engine light fails either of these two tests, the vehicle will fail the smog check inspection.
You need to have the cause of your inoperative check engine light diagnosed and repaired.

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.

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.
