No check engine light, bulb test good

wow, no jeep stated. nor what year, nor what engine.

ill not even beg country (exports are diffr)

below is all ways, discounting bulb tests.

i guess you mean the key on only self test fails with CEL?

ok the PCM glows the lamp at key on, to tell you the PCM is happy and that it passes its rudimentry self checks

basically means its alive.

if the lamp fails to glow ? (all ways, i fix ECU so know this)

  1. power to lamp dead (fuse ) yes fuses can crack (unseen)

  2. lamp bad, (test it with a battery)

  3. cluster wiring to lamp bad, or that wire from PCM to lamp bad.

  4. ECU bad, yes, some bad ECU's can run an engine.

  5. ECU stuck in backup mode, (think limphome but 2 times worse)

in your case id say bad ECU, or bad wire from ECU to CEL.

no year stated, so is it 1988 with that silly junk RENIX EFI with no working CEL or is the unstated car 1993+ where the CEL started working for the first time?

if 93 or newer, we can connect a scan tool, and scan it.

and see , omg , comms are dead, so ECU is in backup mode.

(backup mode is like lawn mower mode, sure it runs but like crap)

ask? can give vivid details of all modes.....

or comm's is ok, and scans and we see DTCs stored and the CEL status in the scanner says ON,"aka, active CEL"

if it says ON< and is not on, then the wire is bad or the

CEL transistor in the ECU blew up. (common with folks using wrong bulb and overheating this poor transistor) replaced many i have.

there are some facts. and is poorly stated. due to NO YEAR !

The service engine soon light will not come for pretest before starting engine. It is an automatic fail for emissions test. 2002 gmc sierra.

This could be something as simple as the Service Engine Soon light bulb being burned out. Removing the instrument cluster isn't too terribly difficult, but if you can carefully pull it out of the dash, look behind where the bulbs are located and see if that one happens to be burned out.
I hope this helps! :)

Computer communctaion

USA anwsers. (outside the USA, 2001 before tools work)
the 1995 sidekick is PRE OBD2, ECU. and is OBD1,
OBD1 prototcal was never published by suzuki so no scan tools work.
period. (over the counter tools)
one reason they went bankrupt here, id bet. like nails in a coffin.
what you do is use the FLASH codes ,just like all cars that era.

here is the full answer, for CEL glowing and driving.

not only can you not communicate, heck , you can even plug the
scan too in. there is no 16pin OBD2 connector on this car.
sorry, nada.

need help ask

Service start system light came on while driving.....was preceded by a popping noise.....the radio cut off as well....what is wrong....what is the fix?

did the engine stall, stall is 0 RPM.
at all stalls, The CEL glows, same as 1st key , CEL glows
this only means the ECU has power. nothing more,
CEL on running, means DTC ERRORS.
what engine is it? in usa, see under hood sticker (look up) and bingo
engine option.
2.4 L I4? ,has a cam chain ,not a belt.,,good. when working on any car with engine problems,first ID the engine
which one, this EFI system varies by country and engine type.

what miles on engine, 50k

the car has a recall issue, see TSBs for alternator
the car has a bad tensioner.
TSB No. TS 01 02011

stalls have may causes.
and tests.
are you tooled up, and DIY ready.
if not , get it fixed at any ASE shop.
