Disconnecting a wire won't cause for the light to go off, if that's what you need for a state inspection. Most cars store the trouble code in their engine computer, and if your state inspection checks for trouble codes, you wouldn't be in the clear.

If it is just the solenoid, it may not be that expensive to fix . . .
