Pull the battery cable off for 10 minutes then see if the light comes back on. If it does, go to Autozone and have them read the code and tell us what it says.

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.

You check for codes & resolve them first

Simply can't guess at vehicle problems without
a vehicle to drive & test

Reset the check engine light to pass inspection


You may be able to disconnect the battery for a couple of hours to clear the trouble codes, but the correct method is to use a scanner or code reader. The light will stay on as long as trouble codes are stored in the computer.

Have a 2002 Honda Civic Hybrid with 192,000 miles. Only issue I have had to this point is the catalytic converter has ben replaced 3 times, all under warranty. My check engine & IMA lights popped on...


What type of Honda Civic do you have? There is a difference between the LX and EX civic exhaust systems. And your vehicle will not pass inspection with your check engine light on.

Engine light is on, plugged into computer and cleared it, do I need to drive a while prior to passing inspection?


No. If you reset the engine light and you had a problem and didn't fix it before resetting light, then you may get about 5 miles or so before light turns back on again.
You can always try driving to see if light is back on so you are prepared and then you will know, if it stays off, then you are good to go.
