Your check engine light means a code has been tripped on your engine management computer. There are hundreds of things that trip this light, some as simple as a loose gas cap. You can go to your local auto parts store, such as Auto Zone, and they will usually read the code and tell you what caused it for Free. Then you can decide where to go from there!

Electrical, with dashboard green lock comes on and do not start.

Factory immobilizer is activates. There is either a fault with the immobilizer or it has detected a key being used that is unauthorized. You can try your other key (if you have one), google your car and key programming to see if you can reprogram it to your cat yourself, contact your local dealer or locksmith. You key has a chip in it that may have failed as well

Light is coming on on dashboard. Not sure if this is for the engine, as I can not locate my owner's manual.

The light will have an icon too, if the icon shows square shape rectangle with + and - symbol then its for battery, ((!)) is for hand brake and a small engine shape is for engine. You can find the images of these icon on Google as they are almost same on all cars. PS: Don't drive the car when these lights come up on dash and show your car to a good mechanic immediately.

Hi have no idicators, central locking, fans inside ABS & Airbag light on

Is the engine starting?

Not sure I have understood the problem. Please confirm if this is correct.

1. the indicator lights on your dashboard do not come on (green lights). Are you saying the green left and right arrow lights do not turn on when you turn the indicator lever up or down. Do you see the outside orange lights flashing?
2. central locking is not working
3. the ABS and Airbag lights on dashoard are on
4. what happens to the fan. This is no clear either.
