When you turn on the key, the check engine light should be on, this is a bulb check function. As you know, the check engine light has to be working to pass inspection. The bulb may be out, or it might have been removed. A scanner will tell you if the check engine light is supposed to be lit. Either way, it will have to be corrected and if there is a stored code the problem will have to be resolved before the car can get through inspection. By Contacting Your Mechanic, you can have a technician come to your home or office to diagnose your check engine light problem and let you know what else may need to be done.
