check engine light not coming on

I have a friend that has a 2006 optima who lives in Texas. She is a recent widow and needs some help. She took her car to a so called mechanic trying to get her car repaired only to be told it would $2000 to get her check engine light to come on when the key is turned on. She is trying to get it inspected.

I live in Georgia so I'm not able to go look at it.

Does the check engine light have a stand alone bulb and or fuse or does the entire instrument cluster have to be replaced?

After picking up her car she says now that nothing is working on the cluster which would to me indicate a bad connection but I'm just guessing.

She lives in Burleson Texas can anyone recommend a good tech or shop she can take her car to?
