Hello, if bulbs changed just to be sure? this leaves only a couple other possibles. One I lean to more than the other. The light is illuminated via the PCM ( computer) If vehicle is running ok, everything else ok? then that pretty much rules out many things but. the lack of the light? I highly suspect the instrument cluster. It is a computer/logic module and the internal circuit driver for the check engine light has failed. Not possible to be 100%. I am not there and would require in depth diagnosis with cluster removed, but I lean to bulb first, then cluster 2nd, PCM 3rd. I have only seen maybe 2 computers in past 35 years doing this that failed to turn on the check engine light thus why I feel the cluster is bad, as long as bulb was swapped out, ruling it out and if so? the cluster IMO is the culprit.It has to be one of the 3 items I mentioned
