Default HELP..Cannot read engine check light..

I had no problem with driving my car and couldn't found any major problem with my car..However, one day I driving my car and engine light coming up so I kinda worried because I need to driving over 5 hours to drive back home(As a result, I came back safely) I've been couple AutoZone and Hibdon to check but they couldn't read. People said line would be dicconeted or exploded fuse. Is anybody has similar problem before?? Let me know. Thanks ya'll.

Thanks!! I checked and i think it could be fuse.
My running light and side mirror motor doesn't work.
Is there any other way that I can check out fuse instead of going to auto repair shop.

yes, its a fuse in the cab panel. Once replaced, you will be able to scan the scode and what not. Simple fix.

Fuses are cheap and easy. Just read your manual and replace the fuse and it will work fine. Also, there is nothing catostrophic that could be wrong resulting in that check engine light. Only minor and often stupid things trigger it. There is no reason to freak out about it.
