Check Engine Light/Battery?
Posted April 22 2005 - 9:22 AM
This should teach me not to replace anyhting before it breaks or wears out. The battery was fine except it is 4 years old and I don't need the aggravation of a dead battery, now I have the aggravation of the check engine light instead. car is 4 years old and I don't need a dead battery

If you have the owner's manual, look up "Check Engine Light" (or "Maintenance Required Light").....it should tell you how to reset it.
On my Honda CRV, you need to have the car off, push in the trip odometer button and hold it, and then turn the ignition to "on", and it resets in 10 seconds. This works on the Honda for both the Check Engine and the Maintenance Required lights.
Might be something similiar with a Toyota, but the manual should tell you.

Had the same issue that required a series of moves with the ingnition and brake peddle, as the mechanic forgot to reset the light after the work was done.
The other problem is that you're giving off too much CO in your emissions, and it has nothing to do with the battery. That could be ligit, or the CO senser is broken
