New DriveClean testing for 2013 for '98 and up

Does this mean that when an MIL/CheckEngine light is on, the car is guaranteed to FAIL? Will the shop refuse to do the driveclean when the idiot light is ON? What if you clear the CEL before heading to the DriveClean shop?

yes , if the light is on it is an fail, no test will be done, if you clear the codes the "monitors"will be reset so no light, but you can not pass the test until all monitors are run and in ready state, if your car is older than 2001 your permited 2 not ready monitors and still pass, but it a fickle thing to pull off, you can do that and they will tell you to drive it for 24 hrs and retest, if not ready again you can get a condition pass..

My local garage is pretty good where they pre-qualify you before they start the test to save you $.

What do you mean pre-qualify and where is this shop?


note: NEW Driveclean test causing headaches ! http://autos.sympatico.ca/auto-news/...sing-headaches
The new emission test is done via obd port, no longer thru the tailpipe. Renewed Ca$h Grab by the province?

They ask questions like if the battery was disconnected, or check engine light reset, etc. just to avoid the not ready condition resulting in the initial test charge which is kind of them to save the customer some money.

Regrardless of whether or not the CEL is on, the client has the option to go ahead with the e-test, or look into having it diagnosed and repaired prior to doing the test. They're just made aware that there is still a charge pass or fail.

I'd say 99% of the cars tested with the CEL at my facility has failed, the odd one somehow went through.

I quickly read that so it appears pre 98 is just sniffer test as usual, but then what happens when you have a standalone?
