Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the engine light is on it's because the engine controller has seen a failure somewhere in a monitored component or system and set a fault code. There are dozens of possible causes for the engine light, a failure of any component in the powertrain can cause the light to come on.

The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes have set and then testing can be done from there based on what codes are found.
