Battery disconnect may do the trick, however if you haven't already, go to an Auto Zone or Pep Boys and they can plug in an OBD II or III scanner to quickly narrow down the issue... for free. :)
This "check engine" light can be triggered by something as simple as a leaky fuel tank cap or faulty vacuum line.
Scan with OBD, then work from there. good luck,

Where is OBD 1 connector location for 1993 Nissan SE-V6 4x4 pick up?


Try disconnecting your battery for 2 minuets then reconnecting the battery . This probably will turn the light off.. then see how long it takes to come back on.. I had Mitsubishi that we never could find out what turned the light on.. The dealer even checked it and could not find the problem (did not even charge us) .. When we would turn off it would stay off for a couple of days.. so to smog it we would turn it off, smog it and worry about it in 2 years..Car ran great, always passed smog eaisly and got over 30mpg and went 200,000 miles..

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.

Check engine light stays on. changed oxygen sensor, pcv valve, coolant sensor, switched out PROM chip, and cannot get a code to blink. replaced all hoses coming off carb. smog pump and egr valve been...


what you could start with is checking to see what trouble codes are being logged for this vehicle...if the engine light stays on, it means the ecu is registering a fault......by the means of a trouble code...now the trouble code doesnt tell you how to fix it, but it does give you the direction to go down...judst wondering if you have tried to obtain the trouble codes

No the water pump will not affect the smog test. You probably failed the idle?
Usually with this age of vehicle you can replace the o2 (oxygen) sensor and it will pass. Cleaning the MAF if it has one cant hurt either if you do it right.
