Check Engine light out
 
I just bought a 2002 Ram 1500, when I tried to get the emission test they wouldn't test it because the "Check Engine" light does not work. I later found out that it has a p0443 code. I checked the fuses and they all seem fine. What else could cause the check engine light to go out?

Not to be Captain Obvious here, but have you checked the bulb? When I bought mine there was no check engine light on, but my scanner showed 2 codes. The Check Engine bulb had been removed. I also had a Range Rover once upon a time whose CEL bulb had burned out because it was on all the time :smiledown:

Agreed. Always start with the most obvious things first.
