Orange check engine light fpr 2005 toyota corolla

Recently an orange check engine light came on in my 2005 toyota corolla. What could be the cause(s) of this?. Is this an ''emergency'' situation? I do not want to damage the car. It appeared on 01/27 and today is the first opportunity to have it looked at. The problem is that I do not get paid until 2/13. Please help. I am concerned.

An orange check engine light means there is an electronic failure in the engine control system. It could be anything from a loose fuel cap, to a bad sensor on the engine. It is not an emergency, but you should get it checked out. A red engine light is an emergency and requires you to immediately stop the car. Yellow is a warning.

Check Engine light 2005 Toyota Corolla


He can't hit a switch and turn on the Check Engine Light, however there are several dozen ways a shoddy mechanic can cause that Light to come on.
Two things you can do is:
1. Disconnect the negative side of the battery and wait about 30-minutes before reconnecting. Check to see if that Light comes back. If not great! If it does:
2. Find out why the Check Engine Light is on. There should be a code that the computer has set. Take it to Autozone or other auto parts stores, where they can hook your vehicle up (for free) to a DRB Scan Tool to eloborate or extrapolate what the Code(s) are.
The real question is if the work the mechanic did caused this. Have their work checked.

2005 toyota corolla ce maint. required need to know how to reset.


To reset the system. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off. If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

What are the causes of check engine light? Can check engine light affect the auto transmission system?


Have you had your air filter changed or checked recently? If you've had it done somewhere other than the dealership that could be your issue. There is a sensor that connects to the enclosure around the air filter. If it is not correctly reattached after service it will cause the check engine light to come on.
Even if you do discover the issue and correct it, the check engine light will persist for server times you turn the engine on and off but usually by the 3-4th day it will turn off on its own. If you think it's mote serious, take it back in for service.
I can't tell you how many times I've taken my Highlander in for service at a non- Toyota dealer (bc I travel for work) and the check engine light comes on bc they check the air filter and neglect to reattach the sensor. Hope this helps.
