The ignition system on this car engine has no distributor, the timing is not adjustable, it is controlled by a central computer called the PCM (Powerttrain control modual), unless the timing belt jumps time there is nothing that can change the timing, and there is nothing to check, the timing is is checked using a special Toyota electronic scan tool, this doean't allow any adjustment just verifies the timing is correct. so after all this, the answer is no there is no mark to check with the light.

Brake light is show up most of the time


Brake lite on? Check master cylinder. Low on fluid. Your front brake pads are probably low also.
Cig lighter/clock/mirror and probably the dome light out too? Check fuses under dash.
Took in for check engine light? What was the code and what did they do?
