Well, then the problem has been fixed, so the Judge should be willing to dismiss the ticket.

Around here, those would be issued as fix-it tickets: you have 14 days to get the problem fixed and then bring the car to any police officer, who can look at the fixed problem/repair bill from a mechanic and then void the ticket. (In some towns, the police even give out coupons provided by local repair shops that give X $ off on such repairs.)
