Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.The check engine light comes on when the system sees a fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or code. In order to know what is failing you are going to need to start first with having the system scanned. In most states you can stop by your local Auto Parts store such as Auto Zone and have a scanned performed at no charge. If you can get this done and post back with the results I can advise you on the needed repair.
Post back with the fault code and or codes and we can work from there. As long as the light is not flashing you are safe to drive it as well.
