That fuse is NOT supposed to be there normally.  You only insert a fuse
there to check the on-board diagnosis system.  The check engine light will
come on with a fuse inserted into this slot.

When you say the light doesn't work anymore...when?  Do you mean it doesn't
come on when you start the car and then go out, or what?
