Do you have a code reader that you can get the specific codes from the computer that cause the check engine light to come on?

Sorry, it happened on my way to work. I was looking for somewhere to start when I get off work.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Where should I start looking??
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

The first place to start is to get the codes read most auto parts stores do this is a free service in all states except California or Virginia New York. If you live in one of those states you can purchase a generic code reader these days for less than $50 I recommend everybody have one in the glovebox will save you hundreds of dollars in diagnostic fees. These code numbers it will give us some direction as to why the light came on. Also need to know the vehicle identification numbers I can look up the specific model that you have and what options are on the vehicle. Once you get those code numbers post them back to this link. Do not open up another question just keep replying to this thread.
