Check Engine Light

I have a 1999 Mazda Protege and the check engine light doesn't come on when the ignition is in the run position. I believe the dealership disabled the check engine light but don't know how to get it to work again.

Do you
have the same problem?

I have never heard of a disable function. However on some models, if the MIL is not on like you discribe, the bulb is either burned out, or it may indicate a problem with the PCM itself.
I would try a new bulb first, and if that doesnt fix it, you can always remove a sensor plug and try and induce an engine code to see if it comes on. One thing tho, if you get a code, you will need a way to clear the code.

It may be a burned out bulb but I do have fault codes that come up when the engine is checked but the check engine light isn't ever on.
