asked by on

My car has 235000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

To answer your question in one word - NO, it won’t pass. Depending on the state you live, the emissions test will also include a safety inspection that will verify that the electrical system is working correctly. Plus, many fuses have multiple systems it powers, so by removing the fuses that control the ABS and TRAC light, it might impact other critical systems. Plus, when the ABS light is illuminated, it typically indicates a problem with the brakes; which is another item on most basic safety inspections.

If you decide to get your car fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can diagnose your ABS and TRAC Lights to ensure your car is ready to pass the emissions test.
