Disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes will clear the warning light if there is no longer a fault. However, if there is a unresolved fault the light will come on again after a hundred miles or so.

thanks alot i was freakin out because i am about to trade in my Toyota and luck has it the stupid light came on so i just followed your answer and it saved me, thanks to whoever submitted this answer........


If you make sure the odometer is on the actual mileage (not a trip) hold it in turn the vehicle off and then back on while you have the button depressed and walah. It is reset!

If you have a code reader you can reset it but if you still have a problem it will just come back on and in all reality if the problem is fixed it will turn itself of in 20 minutes of driving. The 2 common reasons the check engine light comes on is gas cap and the 02 sensors.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.

I just unscrew and take both battery cables off the battery for about 15 minutes and put back on. This should reset the engine light. The check engine light should go out. If it doesn't, you have trouble

The easiest way to reset the 2001 Toyota check engine light is to remove the check engine light fuse. The fuse can be found in the fuse box.
