Question about 2007 Toyota Hilux 2.7
Remove the key from the ignition but keep it handy. Important: Disconnect the negative terminal of the battery for longer than 90 seconds to prevent the risk of having the airbags deploy! Replace the diesel filter (Follow the instructions that can be found in Toyota service manuals (search www). Remove the diesel filter sensor cable (the one on top of the filter assembly). Make sure the new O-rings seat properly. Close the filter assembly by turning the locking ring until it clicks. Bleed the filter assembly by pushing the little plunger thing on the top of the assembly until pumping becomes difficult. Connect the negative back onto the battery. Insert the key in the lock and turn until the dashboard warning lamps come on, but do not start the car yet. Within 3 to 60 seconds of doing this re-connect the diesel flter sensor cable. The light should be extinguished. Obviously there could be another problem causing the light to remain on (not flashing - steady on). If the light is flashing, then you have water in the system and should follow the answer supplied elsewhere by someone else to drain the water. Now start the car and enjoy clean diesel fuel driving. You should really not wait for the light to come on steady before chnaging the filter. Some fanatics believe every 10,000km is the longest you should wait, but this depends on fuel quality, low or high sulfur content, etc. Rather do it more frequently than having to buy new injectors.

go have a look at the feul filter (prsuming its deise and that it is the only light staying on after startingl) under there will be a little white butterfly nut loosen this nut and see if water or diesel poors out of there or alternatly replace the filter easy to do ,or do what every one else does and diconect the wire ,but there is always gonna be a result from not doing it correctly,good luck
