    This means your check engine light did not perform the bulb test. The check engine light should turn on when the key is turned to the run position. The bulb may be burnt out, the instrument cluster may be bad, or the computer driver, or wiring for the light is bad.
    You will need to check if the computer is commanding on the check engine light when in bulb test.
    If it is, then I would remove the cluster and check the bulb (some bulbs are not replacable).
