Hello, and thanks for using JustAnswer, my name Nelson and I have been an Automotive Technician for over 12 years, and I am currently working at a Toyota dealership.

Are you able to access a scan tool to scan the codes to see what is stored in the engines computer?

We will need access to see why the light has come on and that will lead us towards finding a solution
