Hey there. First post here. Picked up a 1988 vandura starcraft a few months ago as a project camping/travelling van. Love the van. Runs perfect and is going great. Trying to smog it and it is going to pass except for the check engine light isn't on when the key is turned. The smog man says it needs to be on to pass smog. But i have no clue where it is located nor did he. Can anyone point me in the right direction or even better have a picture of where it is??? Thanks so much

Welcome to the site jared
The last person probably disconnected the wire to it. Go under the dash to insure its hooked up. You mat have to pull the gauge cluster.

Again welcome

A quick Duck-Duck-Go search for 1988 G-van cluster turns up this image. Looks like it's in the small lower center circle, below the gas gauge. Yellow words at about the 9 o'clock position that say Service Engine Soon.

First things first. Check the bulb. If it's good, wiring. If that all tests out, you may have a bad computer. With terminals a and b shorted together, the computer should go into a self-diagnostic mode, where that light flashes a code 12 to tell you that the self-test and bulb are working. Then it will flash any stored trouble codes.

That's not an 88 dash. It's about a 93.

Is the computer off? Same thing happened when I bought my 89 G20 a few years ago. The brain computer is located under the drivers seat and has a simple on/off toggle switch. Mine was off and couldn't smog. Flipped to on and was ready for CA smog.

Right on. Thanks for the help guys. Not sure if the computer is off or not. Ill check under my seat. Maybe my bulbs are out. Hopefully that's the problem.. I'll be taking the cluster out here soon today. My blinker indicates also don't seem to work on the dash. But my e brake light turns on.
