    Default MOT tomorrow - EML

    My car is booked in for MOT tomorrow morning and it's suddenly hit me that I read somewhere that EML is a failure now? Mine is just for a glow plug. Is it true about the light being a failure?

    If take the car for a run it'll stay out for a while but will they let the car cool before testing it?

    How sure are you? I can't see it mentioned on the VOSA site only the ESC light, power steering light, abs light, airbag light, tpms etc

    Can someone point me to something that states EML is part of new rules?

    Last set of new rules I see on VOSA came into effect Jan 1st. See link above

     Headlamp levelling and cleaning devices when fitted for HID or LED headlamps
     Main beam ‘tell-tale’
     Battery (including batteries for electric or hybrid vehicles)
     Electrical wiring and connectors
     Trailer electrical socket security and damage
     Operation of 13-pin trailer electrical sockets using an approved trailer socket tester
     Operation of the steering lock (where fitted) including that malfunction warning is not displayed for an electronic steering lock
     Electronic power steering malfunction warning indicating a fault
     Electronic parking brake control and malfunction indicator lamp
     Electronic Stability Control (ESC) components, including the switch (if fitted) and malfunction warning
     Brake fluid warning lamp illuminated or inoperative
     Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)
     SRS components including airbags, seat belt pre-tensioners, seat belt load limiters and SRS malfunction warning lamp
     Engine mountings
     Speedometer
     Indirect vision devices (where they replace obligatory mirrors)
