I would fist see if it is coverd by a federal warrenty.If not there are other aftermarket converters that a descent mechanic could install.The first thing I would do is get a better opinion to actually see if it is the converter or somthing the engine is doing to cause the oxygen sencors to say it's a bad converter.Being a mechanic I found that the ethenol alcohol that is added to the gas is causing a load of problems the way the comp. work in the car.Try adding a good does of injector cleaner and run a fue tanks of Hy test gas to see if it gets rid of the codes.

Check Engine light 2005 Toyota Corolla

He can't hit a switch and turn on the Check Engine Light, however there are several dozen ways a shoddy mechanic can cause that Light to come on.
Two things you can do is:
1. Disconnect the negative side of the battery and wait about 30-minutes before reconnecting. Check to see if that Light comes back. If not great! If it does:
2. Find out why the Check Engine Light is on. There should be a code that the computer has set. Take it to Autozone or other auto parts stores, where they can hook your vehicle up (for free) to a DRB Scan Tool to eloborate or extrapolate what the Code(s) are.
The real question is if the work the mechanic did caused this. Have their work checked.

What does it mean when the check engine light is on while driving Toyota Corolla 2000 CE? thank you, Gregory

Your computer has found an error. It may be a small one, or not. You need to have someone (A garage) put a scanner to it to read it out. They can also reset it with the scanner. But if your computer still senses an error, it will turn the light on again.

2003 toyota corolla catalytic converter

If you want the check engine light to stay off, make sure that the converter is a direct fit, and not a universal. It should work fine then.

If the code for the engine light is a Lien code:

Common problem is the Mass Air Flow sensor. Go to your local auto parts store and get a spray solvent to spray right past the air filter.
This will sometimes correct the engine light. Otherwise you may have to replace the MAF.
Do not replace the Catalytic Converter or the O2 sesors. Some mechanics may try to do this, as it is generally the problem on other vehicles. However, on this model Corolla, it is generally not the case.

The oil light is a low pressure warning. Either you need more oil, or a new oil pump.
