The check engine light in a 2004 Toyota Tacoma can come on for many reasons. It could indicate an exhaust leak or a problem with the engine.
um yeah it does have one
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
After the repair, you reset it with an OBD2 scan tool.
This could mean any number of things. I have a 98 Tacoma and the "check engine" light has only come on once in 8 years ... and that was because I didn't have a gas cap at the time!
The Check Engine Light has nothing to do with oil changes. It is on because there is a problem with the emissions system.
Check out www.tacotunes.com they have step by step instructions on how to replace your speakers in your Toyota tacoma.
take postive side of battery off then put back on
check for tune-up, check maf sensor, check o2 sensors, do a fuel system service.
You read the codes with a scanner, repair the cause, and clear the code with the scanner.
The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a problem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions. If the check engine light is flashing a misfire has been detected
How do you know the gas cap is responsible for the Check Engine light? The computer will have to be cleared by a repair shop with a scanner.
check your abs fuse.
Repair the problem that turned it on and then clear the code with an OBD2 scanner/code reader
engine running in park. when warm it should be between the "hot" and "cool" markings on the dipstick.
take off the positive cable on the bettery and turn on the key switch for 5 minuts then put battery cable back on and the check engine light should be off
Depends how big the oil pan is on the engine. The best thing to do is check you owners manual or get a workshop manual. I have a 2003 tacoma prerunner 2.7 liter with and it takes 5.7 qts.
My 1996 4wd Toyota Tacoma had a check engine light and the codes that were obtained were "shift selenoid....." I was informed that it was a sensor inside the transmissions and I has a transmission specialist (AAMCO) work on it. I think they ripped me off. I apid $850.00 to get the work done.
Usually indicates a problem in the emission control system - have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
Check for a worn or loose drive belt.
Try disconnecting battery for about 10 mins. If this does not work , have vehicle scanned (at auto parts) to determine problem or have codes cleared
how to discontect the engine light on a 2001 toyota camery ?
I don't know about the 2000 year model directly but the 1996 is similar I am sure. To reset the "check engine" light, find the EFI fuse (probably under the hood in the fusebox on the driver's side) and with the engine off, remove it for one minute minimum. Replace the fuse and the "check engine" light should be reset.
This is a blown brake fuse check your break fuse and should fix it.
