$100.00 I hope they did a Drive Cycle DTC test for that price, most places like Auto Zone scan for free and most auto shop charge $10.00 to $15.00 to scan since they want you business. 
If you not sure what a Drive Cycle is here is a link for you to better understand on how GM scan there cars for everything. This needs to be done on a dyno and would take up space to use the dyno which most place should have if they do emission testing which i can see $100.00 but there should be a DTC code on to why the Engine light is on.

Good luck and keep me posted, hate places that take advantage of people.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Check engine light is on can u tell me how to fix it

as long as the light stays on you have to scan the car with a OBD-II scanner to find problem code. if you have no scanner auto-zone etc, will scan for free to find problem code. have a good one !!

Engine light is on and just reached 200,000 miles how do i turn it off if nothing is wrong.

Even though you say nothing is wrong it would be a good idea to take it to an auto parts store where they will do a diognostic scan for free and see if any error codes come up. To simply clear the code or light unhook the positive battery cable for about 5 minutes. Please rate this answer, thanks.

My 97 malibu engine light stay on and my engine is

your engine will have to be computer scanned for info regarding what your problem is, it's very likely that it's going to be a engine code that says you have "ENGINE MISFIRE", which could be plugs worn in excess or a fuel injector problem, or ignition coil pack not working 100% all the time and other problems that could be related but a computer scan will give you a lot better idea what is wrong, and direct you to your need trouble code information first!!!...hope this helps....a.c.
