i have had my 2001 GT celica MT for 3 months now. i have already had to replace the tranny, and the check engine light went on for the second time this morning. the first time the light when on i was getting evap codes, i brought it to the shop, they charged me $70 just to turn off the light. apparently nothing was wrong.

is there anyway to reset the engine light without the handheld diagnostics computer? i am really not interested in paying another $70 to have a light turned off

suggestions?

thanks

disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will turn off the light but it will continue to come back on until the problem is fixed.

i had this reoccuring issue for like 3 months, i went through an engine replacement, idle speed control valve replacement and some other minor work. Eventually got to the bottom of the problem...it was a faulty wiring loom. Got that loom replaced and havnt had the light turn on since.
