The computer is supposed to flash that on before you start the car.

Otherwise, if the bulb really is bad the dash must be removed to get at it.

I have never done this, though.

There is a light bulb inside the dashboard that needs to be replaced. You unscrew the dashboard and then unclip the dash cluster out from the dashboard and replace the bulb behind the check engine light slot. Should take less than a half hour. Most auto parts stores stock the bulbs.

My check engene light bulb is out, and i need to replace ot before my inspection... Need to know where the bulb is loacted to replace?


The check engine light is located in the message center right above the instrument cluster. To remove it you will need to jest remove the a pillar trim. Those are the plastic pieces that run from the ceiling down to the dash on both sides. Then you will need to remove the upper dash pannel. It is held in by clips. Gently pry up and it will start to release the clips. Once the upper dash panel is out you will see the screws that hold the message center in place. Remove the screws, remove the message center, and replace the bulbs. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

My check engine light DOES NOT come on when i turn my key foward like the other lights! its 01 blazer, 4.3 .....where is the light located, i think the bulb is burnt out! I have bad hesitation when i stomp...


The light is located next to the gate adjar light in the upper left area of the cluster. It at the 2500 rpm mark on the tachometer.
I would take the vehicle to your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan your car for trouble codes. The will scan the car for you at no charge. Write the codes down and respond back.

CHECK ENGINE BULB REPLACEMENT


You have to take all the facia off the dash - and then pull the dash cluster out. It is a long hard job for a light bulb. When you take the dash out don't forget to undo the speedometer wire and then the wire plugs on the left and right upper sides of the dash unit.
