After my 2001 Rav 4's engine light was on for two years(...yes, after changing two $150-$200 sensors, 5 failed imspections, $250.00 fine for not passing inspection which lead to not being able to renew registration, 6 tickets for no current inspection/registration), Toyota finally sent me letter to say there was a recall on the check engine light. It took them approximately 30 ,imutes to fix the problem after two years of lost time and money...not to mention my driving record credibility (yes, the police can be nasty and give you a ticket more than once the same problem, even if you have a ticket in your hand frrom the same week...speaking from experience!)
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
It is reset with a OBD2 scan tool, after the repair of the system.
