    i think it does stay on with the ignition on...... as long as it goes out a couple of seconds after start up and stays out when running.

    if in any doubt go and have the it code read for faults.

    thats normal mate:>. Besides how would you be able to check emission without actual gasses going through the exhaust? This is only available when engine is running.

    Having the emissions light on all the time can only mean something has failed. Take it to a garage and get the code read. Where abouts are you? Someone on here might be able to give you a hand.
