Question about 2002 Toyota Highlander
Have the history codes read. This will give you an idea where the problem is. Anytime the light comes on, it is stored in the ECM. If the light goes off, then it is stored in the history codes..

SOURCE: how to reset the check
That means that the sensor must be replaced.
You can turn temporarily off the light by disconnecting battery for five minutes, but it will probably come back.
To fix it completely, take it to a garage and have the problem fixed.
Note: when you unplug battery you may be asked car radio security code afterward.

Denalis are famous for clogged fuel filters. Change the fuel filter first and see what happens, Get the code for the check engine light. It could be you have a clogged EGR ports. Remove EGR valve and clean out the ports, replace with new gasket and see what happens. Advise of results.

SOURCE: whining when not accelerating
Loosen and remove the Alternator belt which may be a serpentine belt and see if the whining goes away.
It could be the alternator or the water pump if it's driven by the same belt. It will go away while moving because the engine noise is usually negated by road noise etc but it's probably still there.

The area under the spare tire in my 2002 Highlander has been filling with water, sometimes becoming so full that it overflows when driving and soaks the carpets all the way up to the front seats. The problem, which I finally figured out today, was small cracks, just above the point where the air cylinders that hold the tail gate open are connected to the body. The cracks on both sides were apparently never sealed during assembly. Water flowing back over the top is supposed to enter the slot between the roof and the top of the tail gate, flow down either side, and then exit over the rear bumper. In my case, water was flowing into the aforementioned cracks, down inside the vehicle, and accumulating in the wells on either side of the spare tire compartment, as well as the area under the spare time. My solution was to seal the cracks with a silicone sealent. This has to be a design or assemble fault, but the fix was too simple to bother the dealer. Now I just neet a week of sunshine to dry the Highlander out.
