Toyota 4runner check engine light- how to check?
I have a 99 4runner 4wd v6. Check engine light just came on. Dont have one of those obd scanner things and I was wondering if anyone had a link on how to get the error code without the scanner.

LIKE MERLIN2021 SAID, IF YOU CAN MAKE IT DOWN TO THE LOCAL POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE
THEY HAVE PORTABLE SCANNERS AND THEY WILL BE ABLE TO EXTRACT ANY CODES YOUR COMPUTER HAS GENERATED, SORTA LIKE A CALL FOR HELP (THE REASON THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON)NORMALLY THIS IS A FREE SERVICE
THERE ARE POSSIBLY HUNDREDS OF POSSIBILITIES THAT COULD TURN ON THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, SO JUST BECAUSE LAST TIME IT WAS "THIS"---IT COULD BE "THAT" THIS TIME
THE SCANNER WILL PICK UP A CODE(S) (STUPID EXAMPLES P0123, P0124)
SOMETIMES THE AUTO STORE PEOPLE WILL OFFER SUGGESTIONS AS TO WHAT MIGHT BE WRONG, SOME CODES ARE OBVIOUS, OTHERS MAY BE INTERPRETED DIFFERENT WAYS IN CONJUNCTION WITH YOU CARS SYMPTOMS
YOU CAN "GOOGLE" THE CODES, SORTA GO BY THE PARTS STORES SUGGESTIONS, OR YOU CAN BRING THE "EXACT CODE NUMBERS AND LETTERS" AND THE CARS SYMPTOMS BACK HERE (NOT THE SUGGESTIONS FROM THE OTHER FELLERS), AND MAYBE WE CAN OFFER A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TOO
DEPENDING ON THE PROBLEM THIS COULD BE SOMETHING SIMPLE AND A EZ DIY REPAIR......HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE AN INEXPENSIVE FIX FOR YOU
WAITIN' FOR YOUR RESPONSE....REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU ATTACK YOUR ISSUE, AT MINIMUM WRITE DOWN THE CODE NUMBER(S) YOU MAY HAVE MORE THAN ONE....DISCONNECTING THE BATTERY OR ERASING THEM WITH A SCANNER MAY SORTA KEEP YOU FROM OBTAINING THEM......THEY ARE MOST HELPFUL IN FIGURING OUT A PROBLEM
