1986 325ES Check Engine Light?

Hello BMW forum-goers! Just trying to get a little info on a 86 325ES I gust bought. It has the "CHECK" light flashing in the center, which I read just corresponds to the panel just above the mirror.

But when I took the vehicle in for smog, it failed at first because the "CHECK" light was flashing. After explaining that the light corresponds to the panel, the tester turned the key to find the "check engine" light not coming on. Am I missing something here? Is there a check engine light for the car?

Thanks for the help anyone can give.

There should be a "check" light (for the panel above the mirror) and a "service" light which is in the dash cluster. My check light comes on when I first turn the car on for the brake lights, but once I hit the brakes the check light goes away. I'm not sure if this is the case for everyone but it happens with my car.
