Right side of the cluster. And it says "Check Engine", rather than "Service Engine Soon". Look again; the bulb test is crazy short, like 1/10 second. Keep your eye peeled on that side of the cluster as you turn the key to RUN. Blink, and you'll miss it......

Thanks. Mine is definitely not working. A picture would be great so I can try to replace the bulb.

It's between the seat belt light and the ABS light, in that rightmost column of lights, to the right of the tach. Well I couldn't get a still pic, because it flashes SO fast. I got to play with the slow-mo movie feature on my camera and got a short video.
Did you see it flash? That's actually 1/4 speed; that gives you and idea how short it flashes.

I was trying to figure out what sensor to unplug, to force the light on, but....

Thank you for the video. Mine is definitely not working and neither is the seatbelt light so I'll have to dig around a bit. Might be a wiring issue going on. Appreciate the help, let you know what I find when I get a chance to work on it in between the 60 swap and all my other projects.
