    OH MY god!. I get out of work after my night shift, went to bed and my wife was running some errands. Guess what she sent a txt message with the picture.IMG-20160430-WA0001.jpg and ask if she have to get back home. Now I have to wait till Monday to check this in the dealer. 3899 miles on the odometer. My last tundra 2014 almost 26000 in 2 years and never have a warning light. Any ideas???? I don't like this at all. Let you guys comment.

    Did she put gas in it? If so, did she tighten the gas cap? If you don't, it will throw a CEL.

    ^^^^, what Michael said. You may want to invest in a code reader/scanner at some point. I bought an Ultra Gauge for situations like this for peace of mind and it has the ability to clear error codes. Probably a fluke thing....if not, warranty is your friend.

    Same thing happened to me. After feeling stupid for about an hour, I sat down and re-read the owners bible and bam, there it was, be sure to tighten the gas cap at least one click or the CEL will come on.:goingcrazy::rolleyes:o_Oo_O
