    The light means something is broken, if you can get a code I can tell you where to start looking to get it fixed.

You can disconnect the negative battery cable and reconnect to clear the codes but to get it inspected in most states it has to clear the 'ready's' by driving it. here in nc it can only have one not ready for an 01. if you drive it to get it to clear though, it will most likely turn the light back on so you may have to see what its on for and fix it

My 2001 ford mustang v6 engine will not start due to not being turned on or driven in over a month. How can this be fixed?


Is the engine turning over? Are the dash lights coming on when key is turn on? If engine is turning over and lights are coming on the battery is good. If not the battery is dead. So once engine is turning over and car not starting try pouring just a little fuel inside the fuel bowl and try starting the car. Or get some starting fuel.

I need to turn the Check engine light off, due to passenger/front catalytic converter 2005 nissan xterra


You still fail your state inspection if you turn off the check engine light. So Im sorry to say, that your gonna have to wait untill your new cat gets installed. After its installed you have a few options for turning off the check engine light.
-You can disconnect your battery for a little bit.
-You can take it to pretty much any mainstream auto parts store and they will clear it for free.
Either way you have to complete what is called "a drive cycle" to be able to pass your vehicle inspection.

DRIVE CYCLE
Once problem is fix you complete a drive cycle. Every vehicle is different so this is a general guide.
-There are a certain number of times your vehicle has to be started.
-There is a certain amount of time you have to be driving at different speeds
-There are sometimes a certain millage that has to be reached (ie. drive 75 miles)
If you just drive as you normally do for 100miles (not in one trip) your sure to have reset all the sensers that the state inspection equipment check.

SO IN SHORT
Get the new catyletic convertor installed
Get you 'check engine light' cleared for free at an auto parts store
Drive your car normally for about 100 miles
Get your vehicle state inspection

2001 mustang gt,all access. work fully charged


I would suspect the starter solenoid has failed.

A starter solenoid (or starter relay) is the part of an automobile which relays a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. In many vehicles the solenoid also engages the starter pinion with the ring gear of the engine.

The starter solenoid receives a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the ignition switch is turned on, a small electric current is sent to the starter solenoid. This causes the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts, thus relaying a large electric current to the starter motor, which in turn sets the engine in motion. The starter motor is an electric motor that initiates piston motion in a car's internal combustion engine before it can power itself.
