The description for fault code P1698 is "No CCD Messages Received From PCM" The CCD bus is the circuit that your computer system uses to communicate between the computers. There are several Computers in your vehicle. You didn't mention year or model or engine size, so I can't be specific, but most have at least an Powertrain Control Module (PCM) computer, Transmission Control Module (TCM) computer, an Antilock Brake System (ABS) computer, a Passive Restraint (Air Bag) computer and the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) when one of these computers are unable to communicate through the CCD Bus, the other computers will tell on it. Thus, code P1698.

This can be an internal fault in the PCM (not very likely) it can be a shorted or open CCD Bus circuit, or it could be caused by the PCM losing one of its power or ground circuits and momentarilly shutting down. If your instrument cluster is also having problems like you described, the problem is most likely a power or ground circuit malfunction. The rest of your computers need to be scanned to assist in pinpointing the actual cause of this code. The "Generic OBD" scanners that they use to sell parts with at the auto parts stores do not have the capability to scan your ABS, IPC, Air Bag, or other modules. They can also not access the "Vehicle Specific" side of your PCM. They can only scan the "Generic" codes that are output by the PCM. Again, this is most likely caused by an open or shorted circuit or even a malfunctioning ignition switch - something is most likely causing the PCM, the TCM or the IPC to lose power while you are driving.

Check engine light on Toyota sienna 2000 stays on

have an auto parts store scan the computer for you.
They most often do this for free (oreilly auto parts and autozone)

Write down the code they give you. Should start with "P" (po442, P1406, etc)

That will be the problem, and they will most likely offer you the part right there.

Toyota is big about EVAP system trouble codes (chech engine lights)

But it could be anything, so this should be an easy fix.

You can even ask them at the parts store where the trouble part is located.

let me know once you find the problem code and I can help more.

Pt cruiser engine light came on what is wrong? The light is orange and shaped like a little engine. Do i need to just change the oil?

This light tells you that the engine or transmission needs attention. It's not going to blow up if you keep driving it for a little while, if it's still running (red lights, like oil pressure, mean to stop RIGHT NOW).

Just changing the oil is probably not going to make the light go out. The light was turned on by the engine's computer, and indicates that the computer got a bad reading from one (or more) sensors located throughout the engine and transmission. Most auto parts stores can hook up a code reader to your car and read the trouble code stored by your computer. The trouble code indicates what system is not working properly and that may tell you what to replace to fix it. Or it may require more in-depth testing to determine the exact problem.

The only way to determine what is wrong and what it will cost to fix is to scan for codes that triggered the light to go on. The oil change should not have anything to do with the light (just check the oil to make sure they filled it to the proper level.) If oil level is ok, you can drive it, but have it checked soon because it could cause other problems if ignored for too long. Go to a parts store, most offer free checks of check engine light. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the PT's diagnostic port, and 'read' codes stored on the cars computer. These codes 'trigger' the check engine light to go on. They can then tell you the code#'s, what they mean, and how to fix the problem. If at that point you have any questions, post them and the code #'s here.
