Hello: when you are saying dash wont come on (Im assuming you are saying that dash back lighting is not coming on, you can not see gauges, Am I correct?) As far as the check engine light, this will have to be scanned, If you have an Autozone parts house near you. They will scan test for free, Then you can supply me with the code/codes and we can see what we have to do to fix that isue

The dash gauges are also not working. Will take to auto zone in the morning

This sounds to be a fuse burned issue, (for dash lights, can also effect tail lights (check fuses in underhood fuse/relay box first, then check underdash fuses) this is the issue for loss of dash lights. as far as check engine light, this is a sensor issue with engine or transmission, Thanks, ***** ***** me know if I can be of any othjer assistance to you with this issue! Have a Happy New Year!
