reset engine trouble light

I cleaned my 97 Corolla engine with a degreaser only to get some water in the distributor. I dried it and the engine runs fine except the engine trouble light is on. How do I turn it out or what do I do to get it turned off?

The first step to getting any question answered on this forum is to go to the "Introduce Yourself" section and use it.

If the check engine light is on and the only reason is because of water in the distributor, no doubt causing a random multiple misfire DTC P0300, it will reset itself after three consecutive drive cycles without any further discrepency. However the possibility exists that there is a different problem such as knocking off a vacuum hose or something of that nature. If the MIL doesn't reset in a few days you need to have the vehicle scanned and diagnosed by a competent technician.

You are the stupid one. Reviving threads that died years ago, throwing around stupid ass ideas, 34 posts in day and I'm sure there will be another 30 by the time the day is over. Go quit life.

Then why's the light there in the first place? By what you're saying, all problems are obvious and can be spotted immediately, why does there need to be a check engine light?

Tell me one true thing about cars and I will believe you...

Homosexuality jokes are one of the lowest forms of jokes ever...and they usually suggest something about the person making them
