Hi there, I am Cam.
The check engine light on is good when you turn the key on, it means the engine computer is alive.
The spring is a glow plug indicator and that is also good sign.
Now for the no starting, does the engine crank with the key? Do you hear a click when you turn the key?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
A slight click.
Expert:  GM Tech (Cam) replied 7 months ago.

Ok, so you get a click, that means something is happening and I suspect it means you have a bad connection at the battery, starter , possibly even a faulty starter.
Can you get someone to listen for where the click is happening?
