eml light = fail

airbag light = fail

any warning lights as such are a fail, but most will pass an eml light, but not an air bag light. what cowboys did yours ditch?

wrong and wrong..

Airbag - Not a testable item, you wont fail
EML - Wont fail on the light being on, as long as it passes the emmisions test..
