Thanks for using Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I have been an automotive technician for over 12 years, and I am currently working at a Toyota dealership.

Have you been experiencing any drive-ability issues? unfortunately I wont be much help without knowing the code as to why the light turned on. Do you know of anyone with a code reader? Also many parts store and some garages are willing to scan the light for free for you and will let you know what code is stored for free.

Once you are able to retrieve the code, please let me know what is stored, I would like to help you.
