No fuse, likely the light is burned out.

WONT PASS SMOG.. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS NOT ON


Even after resetting the computer it may take several days to reset the internal workings of the computer. When i went for my E Test they asked me if my check engine lite was on in the last thirty days and if I reset the computer I was to run the car and come back in two weeks. I drive an 2005 car.

Passing smog


Well, the actual procedure is to drive the van far enough to let the engine computer sample a wide range of conditions. The standard method is 100 miles at various speeds including highway and city driving. You could do it in 30 or 50 mile runs but it needs to be over 50 miles total.

MIL/Check Engine Light will not come on during start up to pass smog 2000 Ford Mustang


There should be a 10amp fuse in the fuse box for the instrument panel that powers the light. The light is grounded by the computer.
Have you checked the fuses in the passenger compartment ?

My 1993 Toyota 4runner will not pass smog.The check engine light has been on for some time now. I went to a shop to have it cleared and the mechanic only reset the computer not clear it.I was ordered to a...


Most likely the problem is a bad O2 Sensor. In any case a head gasket will run about $20 and 6 hours of work to replace but I doubt very seriously that is the problem. The check engine light keeps returning because the problem is still present that caused it to activate in the first place. it doesn't matter how many times you reset it. I would start by replacing the O2 Sensor, assuming the vehicle has one. If it doesn't have an O2 Sensor then you need to look at the Map Sensor or Catalytic Convert as being possible problems. If the engine runs better after you clear the code though until the code returns then I wold bet the problem is the Oxygen Sensor more commonly known as the O2 Sensor. They run about $40 at Auto Zone.

2003 Toyota Camry Se V6 has a check engine light after failing smog check test by Fault Code P0500. Unsure why it failed just had some transmission & engine work done at the dealership a couple of...


I had the same problem, then took my car to an expert repair shop who diagnosed the sensors and
found no problem with the car. They notified the DMV who was unaware of the problem, who then told the repair shop (John's Bascom Automotive) that they will adjust their computer system to allow a "two speed idle test". My bill was $95 and I still have to pay for a smog test after driving around for
a couple of days to clear the computer monitors, a fair amount and I gladly paid it.

John advised me that I'd get no satisfaction with Toyota or the DMV. I went to the dealership where I
bought the car and they said that the smog stations don't know what they're doing. They charge
about $100 and work around the P0500 code but it takes them about two hours to do this. I told
them that I should have been notified about the dyno none-compatability by Toyota and that Toyota
should have notified the DMV beforehand. I wonder how many speed sensors are being replaced by
unknowing smog shops around the state. I got Toyota's main customer support phone number and
will call them Monday. I'm going to get my pound of flesh ($95 worth) from the DMV next week also.

No AIR pump


Your vehicle came with a smog pump. It may have seized up (probably breaking the fan belt) and my have simply been removed by a mechanic at an earlier time. It is located below the alternator on your vehicle.
If there is no pump but a bracket to hold it, it has definitely been removed. Vehicles will often pass a state smog test without the pump. It only works during engine decelleration (when you lift your foot off of the gas pedal)
