How can I reset the check engine light on my 2017 Toyota Camry?

I recently had my Camry serviced after noticing the check engine light. The mechanic found the problem and fixed the issue, but my check engine light has not gone away. How do you turn off the check engine light on a Toyota Camry?

If your check engine light stayed on even after your car was serviced, it’s very likely that your mechanic simply forgot to reset it. Don’t worry though, you can reset the check engine light on your 2017 Toyota Camry in a few easy steps:
  1. Turn your car on and make sure that the odometer is displayed.
  2. Turn your car off, then hold the reset button on your trip meter.
  3. Turn your key gently in the ignition to enter accessory mode while still holding the button.
  4. You should see your odometer readings disappear. Once they return, you can release the reset button.
Now that you have successfully gotten rid of your persistent check engine light, you can drive with a little more confidence that your car is in good condition. But before you get back on the road, download the Jerry app to find out how much you can save on your car insurance.
