The vehicle may not pass inspection if:

. The light is on when the engine is running.

. The light does not come on when the ignition is in Service Mode.

. Critical emission control systems have not been completely

diagnosed. If this happens, the vehicle would not be ready for inspection and might require

several days of routine driving before the system is ready for

inspection. This can happen if the 12-volt battery has recently been

replaced or run down, or if the

vehicle has been recently serviced.

See your dealer if the vehicle will not pass or cannot be made ready for

the test.

This light should come on briefly

when the engine is started. If it does not come on then, have it fixed so it will be ready to warn you if there is a problem.

If the light comes on and stays on, there is a brake problem.

The brake system might not be working properly if the brake

system warning light is on. Driving with the brake system warning light on can lead to a crash. If the light is still on after the vehicle has been

pulled off the road and carefully

stopped, have the vehicle towed for service.
