Question about 2006 Scion tC

My daughter left her gas cap unscrewed on her 2006 Scion Tc and the Engine light came on. I screwed the cap back on tight and the light still is on. How do I reset the light?

    There may be some other problem. Do you have a scan tool? If this is a notice that requres resetting, you probably cannot reset the light without a scan tool. With a scan tool, you could rule out another problem and reset any codes that you needed to take care of.

The light should reset itself in time but you can take it to an auto parts store where they do free diagnostic scans and they can reset it and clear the code.

I had the same problem once. I had to go to the dealer or even an local repair shop can do it for you. They will hook up a handheld device to your car and turn the light off. There may be a small fee charged to you. Hopefully you have a local repair shop that you do business with and they may just turn it off for free. It only takes a minute to turn your light off.

I hope this helps you out.
