That is a good question and you can look in your owners' manual and it will show you the symbol it represents for the Check Engine light and also where it is located on the dashboard. Once that light comes on, and it should only be on when you start your vehicle and then go off, then you will know where it is on the dashboard. But if it comes on and stays on, then you have a problem.
Also you can take your car to any gas station or any dealership or mechanic and they will tell you where it is and what it stands for.
Please check your owners' manual first and you will see where it is located.
Hope this helps.
