Hello. If you are getting a check engine light along with a no start, but there are no codes then you may have a computer issue or a voltage problem. I would need to know if the engine will crank when this occurs or does it act like a dead battery. As for the check engine light, it may need a better scan tool to read the codes. I have seen a lot of issues with the ignition switch and with the timing solenoids which can make it hard to start this vehicle. I would need to run further diagnostics to know for sure.
