    Anyone have a guess as to why my check engine light is coming on in my 04 D-Cab PreRunner 3.4L ? I have a bit over 66,500 miles on her. It's running fine. How do I reset that light? Those lights are aggravating to say the least!

    Thanks

    If I had to guess....most likely the bank 1 sensor 1 O2 sensor.

    Mine went out at about 74K miles on my 96 tacoma.

    I actually used this webpage to check the code.

    And a writeup on how to change the 02 sensor
