Engine Management Light – Now a fail on MOT Test

Engine Management Light – MOT Fail Your Engine Managment Light must come on with ignition then turn off when your engine is started. If your Engine Managment Light is faulty or displaying due to a fault you will automatically get a Major Fail on your MOT Test and the fault would need repairing before the vehicle can pass its MOT. Don’t leave it to the last minute or till your test day to address the engine management light fault as not only can a delay in resolving the fault cause more long term damage to the car, but it will no longer pass an MOT and be road worthy with the engine managment light fault.
