You need a scan tool to read fault codes.
Because the computer has detected a fault and turned it on.
Code 54-No cam signal at the PCM-No camshaft position sensor signal detected during engine cranking.
An engine light check means some fault in the engine . Check the handbook to get more details to find what and where the fault is.

The check engine light is reset with a scan tool after repairing the cause of the fault.The check engine light is reset with a scan tool after repairing the cause of the fault.
you need to have the check engine/service engine soon fault codes read to determine what the fault is.
Turn the ignition key to battery on/off three times. The third time you leave the battery power on and read the check engine light. It will blink the first number of the code, pause, then blink the second number of the code. I.E. a code 35 will blink the engine check light three times then pause then another five times. It will pause again and blink another code if such. At the end, it will code a 55 or end of test code. This will let you know that all the fault codes have been displayed and the test is over. Haynes manuals have the codes in them for reference. I used to get EVAP and O2 sensor codes on my '97 Stratus. I just ignored them even tho the check engine light was on for some time then would go out. Periodically they'd come back on for a while and then go out, recording the fault code into the computer. Good Luck. Rod. On a 1997 you will probably need a scan tool.
I would check for any fault codes first with an obd tool, is the check engine light on?
If you are checking a Chrysler/Dodge 55 is "end of message". It just means that there are no more codes to show. If that is the only code you got , then there are no codes.
replace egr valve.
Exhaust gas recirculation valve fault

Engine check urgently
P0442 Evaporative Emission Control System Leak Detected (small leak)
The check engine light does not come on when an oil change is due. The check engine light is for an emissions related failure. It is reset with a scan tool after the fault is repaired.
If your check engine light is on - get the engine checked by a qualified mechanic - don't try turning the light off - it is telling you there is a fault in your engine.
I have a 1998 dodge duragano, error code reads, P1899, changed the Neutral Safety Switch twice.. Check engine light came back on after the all the codes were cleared
When the check engine light is on, the computer sets a fault code. Most auto parts stores will check this code for free and tell you how to fix it.
The check engine light indicates the computer has found a fault and stored a fault code. Many auto parts stores will pull the code for free and tell you what may be causing the issue.
The light, being illuminated, indicates a fault in the system. Until that fault is remedied, the lamp will not reset itself. Faults could be: * low engine oil level * engine oil level too high (yes, damage can occur from too much oil) * oil pressure is too low
Repairing the fault which is causing the check engine light is the recommended way to go about doing this.
