If the engine light is blinking then there is a fault and if you watch the blinks carefully you will probably find a code in the pattern of the blinks.. have the codes read as well .

Check engine light flashes once then 5times


It sounds like a code. reffer to this discussion about it. you can either count the blinks or take the vehicle to your local autozone and have them hook up a code reader and let you know what the problem is.http://www.toyota-4runner.org/classic-t4rs/13471-check-engine-light-came-how-do-i-read-codes.html

2002 toyota highlander 4 cylinder check engine light blinking


A blinking light, like a "service engine soon immediately" light?
The only way to know why the engine computer turned the light on is to plug in a scan tool at the diagnostic port, and then the fault code or codes will be displayed. The code will refer you or a tchnician to a specific system, part, or circuit that the computer has detected a fault in. It probably is the cause of your running rough condition, also.
Some parts stores (Autozone, and other national stores) offer free scan service to retrieve trouble codes. Be careful of buying new parts just because the trouble code refers to them. Most trouble codes need a little testing and further diagnosis to pin-point the problem.
You can post the codes here for help, or take them to youir mechanic.

My car wont stay idling


Lets start with figuring out why the check engine light is on. You can get a blinkout of the the code by switching you key to the on and off position three times quickly and leaving it in the on position on the final time (note, do not take the key so far that it tries to start the engine). So start with the key in, and engine off, quickly turn the key to on, then off, then on, then off, then on and leave it there. Now watch your check engine light. It will blink out any codes that may be stored. The blinking will have breaks between each code and each code is a two digit number. For instance, blink short pause, blink blink, long pause, blink, blink, blink, pause, blink, blink, would be codes 12 and 32. I believe the final code is 55 and just simply means "end of codes". That should at least tell you if its an issue the ECU has detected. You can do a quick google search to find out what each code it spits out means. As for a guess as to why it isn't idling...I've seen everything from a failing fuel pump (inadequate pressure), to a clogged EGR valve cause this. Could be quite a few things unfortunately. Good luck!

Brainbox light comes up on the dashboard after driving few kilometres. I change it with another one but still the same problem. Toyota camry 1994 model.


Well, that's the check engine light I think. It is saying something is not normal. You can read out a trouble code to give you an idea of why it is on. Turn the ignition on, but engine stopped, and with a piece of wire bridge terminals TE1 and E1 in the service terminal box, at one rear corner of the engine compartment.

The check engine light will then blink. A steady blink 4 times per sec is "all normal".

Trouble codes are 2 digits, and these will be blinked - first digit - pause - second digit - repreat.

So the oxygen sensor fail code (a common one) is 21, and will show 2 blinks - pause - 1 blink - repeat.

There are 22 of these codes

Toyaota Camry 1994 engine won't start, Engine light on


I would check for fuel,(pressure and injector pulse), spark, and compression, before checking any codes. Lack of any of these basics can result in codes, and then you waste alot of time chasing a symptom, instead of the actual problem.If more people followed basic diagnostics, which always come back to these three basics, rather than chasing codes first,they would find no starts much more quickly.

How can i check the code for the check engine light without using a meter. I hear there is a way to check the number of times the check engine light blinks with a manual procedure. I have the codes just...


Turn the ignition switch on off on off on off on. After the third time the check engine light should start blinking codes. It will start with 12. That is the start of codes code. It will end with 55. That is the end of codes code. You just want to know what codes are inbetween 12 and 55

Check engine light came on and stayed on


Put the Key into the Ignition and turn from OFF to ON (not START) Position, which is right before Start and do this three (3) times. On the third time leave the Key in the ON (not Start) Position.
If you have a didgital Odometer look there for codes (example P 0123). There may be several so wait until it reads "donE". Record these Codes.
If you do not have anything reading in the Odometer window: Look immediately at the Check Engine Light and count the number of times the Check Engine Light blinks (on and off). There are two (2) digit blinks, then a pause followed by pause followed by more blinks. Record the number of blinks. The last set should be five (5) blinks followed by five (5) blinks.
Get back with me on what the blink counts were. (example 18, 23, 55).
Let me know if this helped, and provide me with additional information I requested. Contact me at FixYa.com using the comment section of tyour original Posted Question.

Over drive light on shifter blinks and check engine light is lit.


You need to have it scanned for codes. The flashing overdrive light means it has trouble codes that pertain to the transmission.
