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.

Failed CA smog test "MIL/Check Engine Light", computer data wiped


No this is not right. If you remove the battery everything resets anyways. If they are talking about relearn procedure, it should only require 50 miles. But if the light is on than either they did something wrong, created another problem, or there was already another one existing. Have the code read and let me know what it is. I'm in Ca too and used to prep european cars for smog, so I do know what I'm looking for. How did the rest do? What were the readings(if possible)?

My 1999 Chevy Prizm has the check engine light on - although I have had no mechanical problems with the care, it drives fine. I have lubed it, and gotten gas recently, but light still stays on.


Your check engine light is an emissions warning. Your vehicle will not pass smog with the engine light on. You can go to kragen or other auto parts stores and buy a GM code reader for it. Though it runs fine, its telling you that a sensor or something is bad.

Service engine soon stay on the ligth?


Service engine soon is telling you to check computer for trouble codes. You can sometimes disconnect battery for 10 seconds and codes will erase. It is a good idea to have them checked. Most Auto stores like Autozone will check for free. You may have to call around. Most repair shops will charge $40 to check.

02 kia fail smog high nox


if the engine computer says that you have a slow O2 sensor what it means is that the sensor does not react as quickly as it should and it needs to be replaced. nox is oxides of nitrogen, a product of too lean combustion which causes cylinder temps to go too high. it sounds like replacing O2 sensor will make it happy. engine computer is having a hard time controlling lean/ rich fuel mix because sensor is slow to register changes, needs to have response time in milliseconds or engine computer can't operate properly. O2 sensors do wear out, normal service item. hope that helps

Smog


Either a burnt bulb, or a fuse. The check engine light has nothing to do with the radio.

Change lightbulb for check engine light


DOES THE SYSTEM GO THROUGH QUICK TEST? I ASK BECAUSE IT IS VERY UNLIKELY THE CEL IS BURNED OUT, NEVER SAW IT EVEN OCE IN 20 YEARS OF DOING SMOGS AND FIXING ITEMS LIKE THE CEL INOP, WAS ALWAYS ANOTHER REASON. THE CHECK ENGINE LIGTH (CEL) IS IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER, IT MUST BE REMOVED TO GET ACCESS TO THE BULB TO EITHER REPLACE IT OR FIGURE OUT WHY IT DOESN'T WORK.

Need list of fault codes for deawoo lanos 1999


Not a solution: This is my problem...
I needed to get my car smogged, but the check engine light was on. Took to to a local smog station that had replaced a sensor for me in the past in order to pass smog. They could not fix it. Put car in dealership garage for repairs and to date, the transmission module sensor (computer) went out and the ignition sensor was out also. The mechanic replaced both and now the code P1702 comes up. What does that code mean? My car still won't pass smog....
