2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Question: Turning off engine light
Turning off the light doesn't get rid of the problem, and the computer that is connected to the vehicle during the inspection may be smarter than that. Your best bet is to get a scan tool, read the codes that turned on the light, write them down, then erase the codes. If the light comes back on you will have to diagnose and repair the problem before it will pass inspection. - Bret Bodas
I started turning off the Air COn, and still does that.
