Check engine lights are reset by fixing the problem that caused the light.

#2: check at a given interval such as some USA cars that come on automatically @60K - does it turn on at an increment?

No, on that car the check engine lamp means you have an issue with the emission system.

Have you a suggestion on item #1?

On item #2: does it have to be reset or does it go off by itself once fault is corrected?

Light on outside temp gauge is a "soldered in" bulb. Not available from MB
