Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could be going on and you have at least a couple different issues. The starting issue should not be related to the engine light in any way. IT's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

Do you hear a click from the engine compartment when turning the key to the crank position?

Have you read the fault codes?
