Question about 2001 Toyota Corolla
My check engine light is on and I found my gas cap loose. I have secured it and wondered when/if the check engine lite will got off if that was the problem. I have been driving the car for 3 days and the lite is still on. Will it take several complete drive cycles or will the code have to be erased by a scanner or other means ? Thanks for any help, John K
The gas cap turned the light on ( I assume you knew that), go to kragen auto and ask them to run a OBD 2 code test, when they get the code ask if they will clear it for you with the scan tool, this is free, other parts stores do this as well for free. If you want to wait the light will clear after a complete drive cycle, this can take up to week depending on what kind of useage the car gets.
