If the car is under warranty, take it to a dealer.

If not, take it to a mechanic that can read the code with an ODBII scanner.

Check engine can be pretty much anything, so you'll need to figure out the ODB2 code from it.
get a cheap reader like this
http://www.amazon.com/Reader-Diagnostic-Check-Engine-Light/dp/B004IV58AY
and it will give you one code such as "PXXXXX"
then you will google this ODB2 code, and you will know exactly what it means and what to look for.
then either you fix the original issue and the check engine light goes away, or you blissfully ignore the issue and reset the light with your reader

When did it come on? Meaning, were you driving or did it come on when you started the car? What type of vehicle is it and what year?

The most economical way is to buy a code tester Amazon has them) then erase the code. The CEL is trying to tell you something abouit the emmissions.

First you have to see what code is in the computer to know what direction to start to find the problem. once this is done then you can start to check the problem system and test to find what caused it and then fix it.

Check engine light came on week ago. changed battery today and now check engine light not on. Will check engine light come on later?


The check engine light may come on later. When the check engine light comes on the computer in your car logs a code. This trouble code may or may not cause drivability issues. The computer in your car always tries to fix the problem. If the check engine light is not on, there is not a problem. It may come on later if it detects another problem. Changing the battery could have fixed some problems. The ground system on the cars cause a lot of problems for technitians. If the trouble light is not on, don't look to spend a lot of money to look for problems that the computer is not picking up.

How do you turn off the check engine light on 2006 toyota tacoma


The easiest way is to disconnect the battery for about five minutes. This will reset the computer and clear any codes. Once you connect the battery you need to take the car out for a drive and let the computer relearn your driving habits. It you have something wrong with the car the check engine light will come on again. You will need to get the error code and fix the problem for the light to stay off permanently. Most car parts places will check your computer for error codes free.
