It is probably because the sensor under the seat for the seat belt has disconnected
--Same thing happened to me. The light would go out when I pulled on the seatbelt. The reason was the simple fact that the belt was twisted before it came out of the shoulder "bracket". Oh... The sensor is in the door post, not under the seat. I also thought of that eventuality and checked. Nope, no sensor under the seat!
Underneath the steering column
The check engine light on a Toyota Tercel can come on for a variety of reasons. It can be come on whenever there is a problem with the engine that needs attention. To reset it, disconnect the battery for a few minutes then re-connect it.
Check engine lights will not turn off in a vehicle until they are reset. To reset the light on a 1994 Toyota Tercel pull the ECU fuse.
you must remove the grill and the bezel that surrounds the light.
Light housing twists from inside of trunk for access of bulbs.Toyo joe
The brake light switch is broken or out of adjustment.
go to your owners manuel, there is a section in there that will tell you or call your local dealer
It's on the brake pedal just above the viewable area.
More than likely, the stop pad has fallen or broken off.
Because one of your door sensors are broken.
open the trunk, and pull back the carpet and there will be 2 nuts holding the light in place. unscrew them and pull the light out.
don't bother-its not worth the hassle. Or go to a local body shop or the Toyota dealer near you and get their opinion
It is in the fuse box. Check all of the fuses with a test light.
It is usually located on the brake pedal itself approximately halfway up
Clock and Radio, i had a small short on my tercel and i blew my radio and dashboard clock, now they are not working, trying to replace that fuse..
On a stock 1994 Toyota Tercel, the warning lights are located in two sets of three warning lights, one set under the fuel gauge and the other under the temperature gauge. The lights are horizontally set, not vertically, so there is no symbol underneath another. It is possible that the instrument cluster was modified, as the Tercel is a favorite for modifications.
The 1993 Toyota Camry backup light fuse is part of the brake light relay switch. The brake light relay switch can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard.
Unscrew the screw that attaches it to the headlight. Pop it out. Twist bulb so it comes out.
may be security system - indicating that if radio removed from this vehicle, it will not work in another
I work in the auto parts business and you need to take it to a mechanic so he can run a diagnostic check and tell you exactly what is making the light come on.
Toyato never made Tercels. :P But the Toyota Tercel's brake light switch is located ON the brake pedal just above the viewable area.
It is probably your EGR valve causing the check engine light. I recently bought a used 1997 Toyota Celica and had this exact problem. The new valve cost approximately $85 and fixed the problem right away.
Is this a trick question? My answer is "there is no problem". It Depends on the code that will detrmined what the problem was. or what ever you fix it with was the problem
