could be a number of things, need to slef computer check, by turning the key to the on position then off, then on again, then off again, and on but leave it on the thrid time, watch your dit read out where your milage counter is, the codes will flash and when "done" flashes, the computer is done of self check mode. computer will hold codes im memory for a long time, check on web sites for what coades are what, and when fixed, diconnect the battery for about 2 mins to reset the memory of the computer. good luck

To figure out the codes (flashes) when you do that, it will begin by flashing once, wait a second, then flash twice (code 12) that's the beginning of the test. There will be a few second delay between the code numbers. The last one will be code 55 (meaning end of test). Several places have the meaning of the codes but an occassional check engine light is most likely the oxygen sensor. Its rather common. Usually code 21.

Why is the check engine light on when nothing is wrong on 97 Montero?

Not sure if this relates to your situation, but my 97 Montero Sport is notorious for activating the check engine light when I have not turned the gas cap until it clicks several times. I was warned about this when I bought it - not sure if it was more sensitive in that year. In fact, sometimes after it comes on I go and re-fuel, re-tighten the cap, and it goes off on its own...
