Most toyotas you have to bridge terminals TE1 and E1 with a jumper wire or paper clip of the diagnostic connector.Found either near the left shock tower (in the engine compartment), next to the master cylinder,or near the fuse/relay box (also in the engine compartment) After you bridge the terminals, you turn the key to the on position, and count the number of flashes of the check engine light. This will indicate the trouble code #. P.S. I have always found to be quite helpful. You can enter your yr/make /model and view online Chiltons manuals. For Free. Good Luck.

Check engine light on, Mitsubishi lancer

To reset the computer, disconnect the battery for a couple minutes, then hook it back up again. This will not solve the problem if there is one. The check engine light comes on to let you know that there is a problem. If you take it to an auto parts store, they can read the trouble codes and reset the check engine light.

I have 2000 Avalon xls. i faced several problems with the check engine light. It came on and my engine started shacking hardly for several seconds and sometimes minutes. i did a check and the computer came...

When the Check Light Flashes vs: being on steady,
you stop using the vehicle, as that indicates a misfire
bad enough to damage the Exhaust Converter

So obviously, you should have gone to a repair shop
a long time ago & resolved whatever issues are there

Red Check engine light on my 1994 E320

well..i am not sure whether this is gonna solve your problem..but i had the same head ache with the check engine & check engine electronics alert on the cluster instrument..i removed the battery terminals for 10 minutes and replaced them & my problem solved successfully..but just beware that you connect them together at the same time with no short circuits which might mislead u with the same problem.
