Go to your local automobile repair shop and have them hook up a handheld computer, it will read you the code and tell you what the problem is. You can also delete the code and it won't come back up for another couple hundred miles, depending on the car. do it yourself alternative: I have a 1991 Previa. I believe the 92 has the same layout. Turn all accessories off. Engine off. Under the drivers seat is a small plastic box. Pop the lid. With a wire, paperclip, etc, place it in the connector pins TE1 and E1. Turn engine key to "ON", but do not start engine. The check engine light will blink out the code (like telegraph code). I don't have the codes handy, but see for example the Chilton or Haynes manual, or do a web search (good luck).

You will need to go to a repair shop and have them scan for codes. That will tell them the problem and when it is repaired they can reset the light.

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.

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.

The check engine light comes on and stays on when there is a problem with the emissions systems. You need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scanner. This will retrieve the code that has been set and tell you what part of the system is being effected. It will not necessarily tell you what part is defective.

To turn off the check engine light on a 1999 Toyota Camry you can disconnect the battery. This will only reset the check engine light. So if there is a persistant problem with the engine, the light is likely going to stay on. To turn off the check engine light on a 1999 Toyota Camry you can disconnect the battery.

There are many van Toyota has. You should check out the Avanza, Innova and Previa. They all have been revamped in 2016 and have state of the art features. Take a test drive of all the cars.

Connect an OBD2 scan tool which will retrieve the codes set by the ECU. If you mean how to check to see if the light is working just turn the key on without starting the engine. The check engine light will illuminate.
