Engine check caution light

CL light is black

HELP.

My engine check CL does not illuminate, when key is position 2.
Replaced a new bulb just in case and still no light, what next for trouble-shooting.
Should I remove battery power for a minute to reset something.

Not sure I understand your problem, but if you are talking about the CEL (Check Engine Light) it is supposed to be "black" unless there is something wrong w/ your car. Why on earth would you want it to come on???

Aren't most warning lights on (at least for a short time) before you start the car, key in "ignition on" position? This allows the driver to be sure that the systems are operative. Have to say that I don't know if my car still does this, now that they have all sorts of "lamp failure" systems.

Could go and check but I don't have an ML anyway.

Good point! I know a lot of my warning lights flash when I start the car, and I would go check my CEL but I don't have an ML either...

If bulb is good, could be an ECU fault. Have dealer check.
