360 hassle - since you have a check-engine light on, and your car is an OBD2 car (96 or newer), go to AutoZone and have the ECU scanned (it's free). They'll give you the fault code(s), which you can post up here, and we can diagnose it then.

SOURCE: check engine light/2003 toyota CE

I have a 2005 Camry that has this as a 'feature'. the check engine light comes on after a few thousand miles to indicate that the oil has to be changed. Even if you change the oil, the light comes on unless you reset it. If this is also applicable to your Corolla, check your manual for exact instructions. I always have to look up how to reset it. It is a combination of turning your key in the ignition and holding the odometer reset button. I have to do this every so often. Btw, if this is the cause of your check engine light, it is only meant as a reminder to you, there is nothing wrong with the car.

SOURCE: wont complete scan to pass emission test

When you rest your codes there is a series of tests your ECU has to go through before you can pass emissions. this is done some people can reset the code and go before its sets the code again. on the 96 you can have 2 tests not complete for it to pass. basicly you have to drive the car a couple days for the tests to pass.

check the readiness tests wait until only 2 have not passed. then you should be drive and check.

SOURCE: 1996 doge intrepid wont pass emission test because IM monitors ar

Just maybe your O2 sensors are not operating properly. They may be requiring your engine to heat them up to get upper temperature readings but not lower. You can easily diagnose these and all other sensors and problems by purchasing a Hains manual at your local Auto Zone or Advance auto store which will greatly aide you in diagnosing all your auto needs. And the fault symptom index at the beginning of the book will ease your troubles with professional one on one advice with step by step instructions. Its like having your own ASE certified mechanic at your finger tips. Good luck.

Sounds like a crossed wiring connection somewhere, if the four-way flashers are turning on the high-beam indicator. Check all the connectors in the associated wiring harnesses for the instrument panel. Good luck!
