did you check fuse 10 in the instrument fuse panel to verify power to the light?? this would be a good start Roy -
Comment 1
No I haven't yet.If there is power to the light is the bulb across the top of the dash next to air bag and abs lights that light up at start?And how do you change it? -
Comment 2
my suggestion is to get a flashlight and shine it on the dash to see where the light should be. the dash has to be removed as the socket is acessable from the rear of the dash assembly. Roy -

Thanks.Also the code came up on emissions test for evaporative control purge flow ...PO441 andP1655 Mfr controlled computer Ckt........Any Ideas on what to do for that?..... -
Comment 4
both codes have to do with the evap system. make sure there is voltage to the purge and flow solenoids and see if they even work. you must apply a grounbd after the power is verified to make sure they operate. these issues can be be very involved hunting down powers and grounds. Roy -
