Check for codes first. You might have an issue that keeps the light from illuminating.

I did get a code i can't remember what my mechanic said but he said it could be new wires and plugs or a fuse or or the light itself. Or itcould be the computer system itself. I really hope not. But thank you for your reply. I appreciate it!


Plugs and wires wouldn't keep the light from coming on. A fuse, the "E" light bulb or computer issues themselves are easy to check once the code reader is attached, maybe you should try a different mechanic or different GM garage.


Probably the light bulb is burned out. You may have to replace the instrument cluster to fix it. HTH. -Jim
