The service engine light is the same thing as a check engine light.

Not sure which light you are referring to. The Service Engine soon light can be nothing more than a light reminding you to change your oil. It can also be what is normally called the Check Engine Light which means there is a problem with the emissions system. The cause can be as simple as a loose gas cap, and as complicated as a defective sensor. A scan of the ECU with an OBD2 scan tool will give you a fault code. This code will help determine exactly what part is defective. Turn on the ignition and see if you have a Check Engine light. It will only stay on for a few seconds. If you do, then this Service Engine Soon light means to perform regular maintenance. If not, it means the emissions system needs service.

Normally this would be wired into the Instrument Lights.

I have a 1992 regal and it is located under the glove-box behind a piece of black plastic.

If the check engine light does not flash when in the diag mode, the problem is the computer. Could be as simple as a failed lamp driver but a failed computer is toast and will need to be replaced/
