Get the codes scanned by local shop/dealership. Or scan them yourself with an OBD-II or I reader. They cost around 100-200$

Engine cranks no dash lights present

the fuse blew. (they do that to stop a fire.)
check all fuses in both fuse boxes.
at left knee, and in engine bay box.
the CEL must glow, key on, or the ECU power is GONE (FUSE)
CEL = check engine lamp... no CEL no EFI no EFI no start, no spark and no injections.

Engine light flashing someone said reset the cel or disconnect the battery for five minutes

Lets start with what is cel? CEL stands for Check Engine Light.

It is true that you can disconnect battery for 5 minutes to shut light off but you still have a problem, When ever the engine light blinks it is telling you some thing is wrong and is causing cataylic converter damage, the only time the light will bling is when the engine is misfiring and dumping gas into converter.

You will need to have the problem fixed or damage will occur and light will come back on.
Go to an auto parts store, like an auto zone and have them scan the computer for the stored codes, if you can get me the codes i will help you solve the problem, i would bet the code or codes will be po 300 codes, but get the codes.
Also i will need to know what year,make and model car you have with the engine size, good day

My check engine light is on but my car seems to be running just fine. i checked my gas cap and it is on correctly.

For check engine lights (CELs) please head to your nearest AutoZone or Advanced Auto Parts. They will have a diagnostic tool that can read the CEL and pull the code. You can then look the code up and figure out what is causing the CEL. Once this is fixed the CEL should no longer come on.

Hope this helps.

Check engine light (CEL) problem

Yes the CEL should have turned on. Just turn the key to the run position and the light should turn on.If it doesn't, the bulb may be burned out. Also, if the coil failed and was driven for awhile, it may cause the cat converter to fail after awhile of driving. So, please keep that in mind.

Check engine code

I'm new to this website, have a problem with my '93 Dakota, 5.2L but thought I'd post to your question.

The readers would need more information than what you supplied.

On my Dakota, to check the CEL(Check Engine Light), cycle the ignition switch to RUN-OFF-RUN-OFF-RUN, then count the flashes of the CEL. There will be a distinct pause between each set of 2 number flashes, finally ending with a code of 55 signaling the end of the code display.

Some of the codes will keep the CEL lit all the time, while others will store but not light the CEL when running.
If you post the codes you see, and look them up, it might give you (and the reaers here) a better idea of your problem.
