If the starter is turning the engine, try re-setting the security system (leave key on till light stops blinking.) If the starter does not turn, you may have some success in re-setting system, if not you need to check battery voltage and voltages in starter system till you find the problem...can be something as simple as a bad connection at the battery. If you need help with further testing, just ask.

SOURCE: I drove my car to
Check your neutral safety switch in your transmission. If all your lights on your dash, radio, etc., all stay on and don't dim when you try cranking, it's almost certainly the neutral safety switch.

SOURCE: check engine light came on
The check engine light can come on for literally HUNDREDS of reasons. The reason that your check engine light came on may or may not be related to your car not starting. It could be just coincidence or it could also be that the light was trying to warn you about a system failure that is now keeping you from starting your car.
The only thing that is fairly certain is that the computer will have set a fault code in memory to tell you why it turned the light on. Whatever you do, don't keep trying to start it . Quit until you can get the computer system scanned.
Many times I have had cars towed in because of similar problems. The problem was made worse because the customer kept trying to start the engine until the battery went completely dead. The problem with this is that you can lose the codes that will tell you what is going on. The computer literally "loses its mind" when the battery is run too low. With no codes to narrow things down, the problem has to be manually diagnosed. EVERYTHING will have to be checked to eliminate possibilities. This can take a LOT of time and can be VERY expensive.
