When you see the "Check Engine" light on your Toyota Camry's display panel, it has illuminated because of the ECU, or "Electronic Control Unit." This is a computer that stores codes sent to it by sensors positioned throughout the vehicle. When this light comes on, you should take your vehicle to a qualified mechanic or fix it yourself as soon as possible. Once the problem is fixed, you can reset the system and turn the light off manually.
