Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

If the engine light is on it's because the engine controller has seen an issue somewhere in a monitored component or system and set a fault code. The engine light being on may be unrelated to the cause of your no start, but either way the first step in diagnosing the issue is to see what fault codes are setting. Do you know what codes are setting?

Hi no i havent any codes. if i did i would know the answer to the problem sorry but this is why ive come to you .

The first step in diagnosing the issue is going to be seeing what fault codes have set. A code reader or scan tool will need to be connected to the data link connector and read the codes from the ECM.
