Hello and thank you for using Just Answer


does the engine light light when you turn the key foward for the bulb check?


are you jumpering pin 10 to ground?

yes 10 to ground but the check engine ligth is of all the time

Looks like you have a bad bulb because it should come on when the key is first turned on for the bulb check


I would replace the bulb and recheck for codes

if the bulb is fine, what do I check next?

the light is powered by the ECU


so if the bulb is good and you have good ground to the cluster. and the gray/black from the ECU is good the ECU or the cluster is faulty
