No, bulb is there...this car has a brand new $600 dash gauge set put in. It is my brother's car, we found it odd we have a code, but no light for check eng. It may still pass inspection as long as there are no codes being logged out. Got the O2 sensor off the rear bank- pre cat. Ordering it tomorrow. Only other problem is a "traction" light (like a wheel symbol) is lit up....the manual does not seem to address this very well, and there is no code showing up for it?
