Check engine lite came on
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 1 year ago.

Hello, thanks for posting ,

the check engine light came on because the computer detected a fault in the engine control system, apparently serious enough to shut the engine down. Is the car now at a repair shop or at your home?

You mentioned that it won't start, does this mean it turns over but won't fire up or is everything electrical dead?

Thanks for the reply, does it try to start, sputter, backfire? Anything at all? Can you put same gas directly into the intake and see if it responds?
