I took the car in for a new inspection sticker, and when I returned to pick the car up, I was told the car had failed because the check engine light was on. I asked him if he could have predicted failure with the light on, and why he didn't tell me the car would fail before I committed to the test. (I hadn't noticed the CEL when I drove in).
******* He told me it is against the law in NY State to warn me ahead of the test that the CEL is on before he begins the test. *******
So had to go to the dealer and have them check and reset the light before I could have the test done
How can I confirm this assertion? Seems ridiculous.
