How can you read check engine codes for a Toyota vehicle?

Answer

In Toyota cars, when the check engine light illuminates, a Toyota Tech attaches a computer scanner to the computer plug-in found under the drivers side dashboard by the kick panel. This scanner enables the tech to retrieve the code that will inform them as to what is in need of repair or attention. Under certain conditions it may be necessary to contact Toyota Technical Assistance for repair services. Toyota dealerships offer certified and licensed technicians to repair their vehicles.
