So ever since I have my car 2002 c180 w203 m111 its been more than 3 years the check engine light has never came on along with the other lights which come like the ESP ABS Brake SRS etc and go away on startup, I have had the cluster out once and inspected the leds behind but seemingly everything looked fine but since there is no bulb no real way to be sure, my centre screen is also night and bright, do some cars not have this light on startup? I never had a big issue for which the light would have come on so don't know if its working or not, the worst I had was a secondary air injection code only on cold starts on somedays show up on a scanner.

I looked at some youtube videos and many Russian cars which I found with the same year and engine as mine didn't see the light come on is that normal? I know on BMW diesels some of them it doesn't come on with key in ignition one for a fact.

take for example on this video light doesn't come on



whereas on other models either the symbol or wording is there as below maxresdefault-5.jpg maxresdefault-6.jpg

my speedo is also in KM btw mine was manufactured in South Africa and was sold to a dealership in Japan from where I imported it.
