I am unclear what exactly you are asking.

There is no way to reset the OBDII computer without a scanner.

Once you reset the OBDII computer codes, you must go through whats called a road test which is about 100 miles of driving for the OBDII to make sure everything is running well.

How to reset the check engine light on a 1999 toyota avalon xls


You need to have a code reader/scan tool hooked up to retrieve the code/s that triggered the engine light. You can have this done at most auto parts stores for free. Try Auto zone, Checkers, Napa, or Murray's. The engine light will eventually go out if the computer does not receive any codes after many cycles turning the ignition on and off. It will not go out if there are codes still present. After you've retrieve the code/s bring them back here and we will have a better understanding of what caused them.

I put new spark plugs and boots and the engine still idels rough, do you have any ideal what it could be? The car has a 107,000 miles


We need to know why the service engine light is illuminated. The only way to do this is to have the system scanned for trouble codes. You can take the car to almost any auto parts store, Auto zone, Napa, Checkers, Schucks, and Murray's. They will hook up a scan tool/OBDII code reader and retrieve the code/s that have triggered the service engine soon light. This is important, you don't want to replace things randomly it can get very expensive and may not correct the problem. Bring the code/s back here and we will be more able to diagnose whats going on. These are complex computer controlled systems, and the codes are a major factor in diagnoses.

Usually if the problem is indeed gone it will clear itself. But if yours won't you probably either need to reset it yourself with a automotive computer code reader better known as a OBD2 reader (about $100) or take it to a auto shop for them to reset.

I just got my oil changed, and my check engine light came on


Good chance they did something during oil change, inadvertently or on purpose. Check your oil level first, then look for broken wires. Check your gas cap too, a loos e gas cap is most frequent reason for the light to come on. Finally, take it to an auto parts store and see if they can hook up a diagnostic checker (for free, autozone does not charge for this service.) and tell you the problem.

Check engine light


Take it to any Auto Zone, Checker, or similar auto parts store, they will have the right adapter for your car and do it for free. Some auto shops will also do this for free. It will be a plug under driver side dash that you hook the computer up to.

ENGINE LIGHT WENT ON AT 73K MILES


When the light goes on, you should take it to a local auto parts store such as NAPA, Checker, AutoZone, etc. and they can hook it up to a device for free (make sure it is free, it should be) and it will display codes which will tell what component is bad. Your dealer may also do this for free. If they don't know what the codes are, then post the codes here and I can let you know. Your owners manual won't have the codes in it as you would need a service manual. If you have any other questions please let me know.
